Video Feature

Love the apps convenience, it’s just the video uploading and eventual downloading does not work on the the mobile app. I always get errors.
Fix

I want to download my canvas project to my photos, but every time I try even when I turn the app off in the background it freezes on my screen. Can you fix this?

I like Canva but...

I hate this app. I want to throw my iPad across the room every time I use it. 👎🏻
the most frustrating app in history
by gchachaba on 2019/12/05 19:43
I really want to love Canva. The premise is great, and I use it all the time for school. However, with the amount of glitches and slowness on the app, I’m honestly starting to question if it’s worth it. I went to save an infographic that I made, but when I saw the final project, the page was not anything like what I had made. I tried repeatedly to save it from the app into my photos, but I finally gave up and screenshotted it. Don’t get me started on how slow the editing is. It took me three hours to make said infographic mentioned before because I would click to edit something and it would glitch and crash. I literally can’t use Canva in class because of how aggravated I get. Canva would be such and amazing and useful app if the glitches and slowness didn’t take away the value of it. Please do something to fix this so I can actually enjoy the app.
Not impressed
by riccccccccccxxxxxxxx on 2019/12/05 18:40
Had it for a few Days now, 1st it kept crashing so I uninstalled it, Now it won’t even load . I’m sure it works for some but just wasting space on my mobile device
App doesn’t work

Slooooooooow Customer Service
by MdmNogier on 2019/12/03 18:02
There was an issue with ordering my project (Place Order button didn’t work) and the only way to reach customer service was by email. It took them over a week to respond. Thankfully my project didn’t have a deadline thus time! Then when I figured out the solution on my own there were two orders placed. I am currently waiting 4+ days to hear back from them about returning the double order and getting my money back. Incredibly frustrating. Otherwise an intuitive and nice design tool.
Greatest App For Beginners & Veterans
by BabyGraphics on 2019/12/03 16:07
I never leave reviews about apps in fact this would be the first one. This app might not have every feature like glitter lettering but it definitely gets the job done for a small business the can’t or doesn’t want to pay graphic designer for every flyer! This app is super easy I use both on the computer & my phone sometimes while using it I run into a snag & have to use my computer! But it simple to use and it has turned me into a graphic designer overnight!
Best app but only 3 stars

WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO LOCK ITEMS IN PLACE!!! I’m sure everyone has had this happen.. you’re trying to edit but your big thumbs click something else and completely changes your whole design!! The most frustrating thing ever.. !!! FIX THIS!!!!!!!
It was supposed to be good
by Pascal Roger on 2019/12/03 06:43
I love using canva on my laptop in the web and when ipados was released, i was thrilled at the thought of being able to use it on my ipad. Sadly it was way to laggy and had too many bugs, thats why i naturally gravitated to the app. To my surprise it was full of bugs too. This time though, much much worse. I think ill go back to the web version.
Love this app

Great way to create stuff for social media 👌
I use this app all the time & I LOVE it!
by Sky Greenwood on 2019/12/01 21:56
Out of all the graphic creator apps I’ve tried- Canva is by far my favorite!! I use it often to create graphics of all kinds: logos, Instagram posts, invitations, flyers, and SO much more. You can use the templates or start from scratch and create on your own. There are TONS of free images and graphics included in the free version of the app. My only complaint is that it seems to crash quite a bit (sometimes more than others) and close out of the app. Luckily though, whenever it does crash, it DOES save all the work you just did pre-crash.

Big Nothing
by Chunky Princess on 2019/12/01 03:30
Not sure what is wrong but nothing loads. App says that my iPad is a compatible version, but that little loading circle just keeps spinning round and round. I spent $12.99 for a big nothing. Super disappointed.

DATA BREACH WARNING
by MyName5555 on 2019/11/30 17:03
I was notified this week that my email address was leaked/hacked from Canva to the dark web. Be warned about your info security. This is why I hate app devs asking for personal info.
So Frustrating
by Elehmann on 2019/11/30 15:22
I can’t say how many times I’ve tried to create a Facebook cover photo, to have the design not save how I created it, not load, error out, etc. and when it does work, the dimensions aren’t correct. I will be cancelling my subscription.

SCAM!!!!!! Charged me $119
by Zoeboo2 on 2019/11/29 10:21
They have no phone number but have no problem charging my card $119.40 without my knowledge. Their “FREE TRIAL” is an absolute scam. I’m sick to my stomach an app charged me so much and I am having so much trouble trying to get the money back. I’m going to have to go to my bank to report fraud.
Easier on a desktop.
by DowDang on 2019/11/28 20:36
I love this program, I’ve used the desktop version a few times with much success. However, I find the app to be somewhat clunky and not very intuitive.

App needs some tweaks
by DrKirklandPT on 2019/11/28 12:48
First, let me start by saying that overall, the Canva platform is AMAZING! On the computer, it’s pretty much all I use for my nonprofits marketing and social media needs. The app, on the other hand, is a bit frustrating. If you have to switch from Canva to another app you lose everything. Moving objects isn’t the smoothest either, and many times results in changing the shape rather than moving it. Lastly, in the middle of a project, the app freezes quite a bit. So, Canva, overall gets 5 stars, but the app leaves something to be desired. It doesn’t come close to the awesomeness of the online version.
The best app ever!
by stephyxox91119 on 2019/11/28 10:30
Canva is life!
I use this for everything I need! Great for on the go too!
by SemsThoughts on 2019/11/27 20:04
Working within a volunteer position at an association I have tried pretty much every tool out there to help design social media posts, to activity books & reports. Canva (both desktop & the app), have really been a life saver on multiple fronts. It's pretty easy to use & create anything in a pinch when it comes to creating quickly or on the go. Their library has expanded & I love when they roll out new features like motion in Instagram stories. I truly can not recommend it enough. On a personal note, I have used their resume templates & have received great feedback from employers to help give me a boost in career selections for jobs. I really do have Canva to thank for my employment! You helped me nail my job :)
Thank you canva

I have a monthly subscription. I use Canva for Social Media posts and use templates. It even has video templates which are more expensive with other subscriptions. It does the work of several apps. Very awesome!
Went from great UX to the worst
by ellentk on 2019/11/27 13:38
The update to the latest on the ipad has rendered this app useless. They forgot the User Experience in this formerly useful tool. Adding an image - even after granting access to my photos - does not work. On iphone or ipad. I use it horizontally on my ipad and that’s just hell. Slow, not able to add images from camera roll, forgets the text I set on a graphic I created on another device and open on the ipad. Orientation of left right/top bottom with tools is frustrating. Can’t imagine paying a subscription fee - I almost did!
Watch yourself with this app
by PlatinumJR on 2019/11/27 11:39
They leaked my email address to the dark web. 🤷‍♂️ (UPDATE- since response- More precautious should have been taken. Far too may people had information stolen thanks to this app. Apple should remove this app from the store. Amazing how many people’s info was leaked from this app alone. 🤨🧐)

Broken App
by AnthonyThinksThisIsStupid on 2019/11/26 17:16
Every time I try to use canva, the app does NOT work the way it is supposed to. It saves the wrong photo to my camera roll, uploads the photo to the app with the wrong orientation, does not scale photos properly, and often times doesn’t save any photo whatsoever. I strongly dislike this app and I wish I could give it negative stars.
Greeeeeaaattt!!

Hacked
by trythisone2 on 2019/11/25 20:12
I was notified my email address was taken from their app and website from a recent hack ! Fix your security! Then if I rate you low I can’t enter any nick name always says taken! This didn’t happen last May just this month so I guess your means of a fix didn’t work !
Edited text on this app is SO glitchy
by Sam1990Jo on 2019/11/25 17:37
There are some beautiful designs on this app, but trying to edit and personalize them is absolute trash. I am so frustrated!
Glitchy
by TiffanytLouise on 2019/11/25 17:31
Honestly, app version of this program is very glitchy. The desktop version seems much more user friendly. I am always having to start over, re download, and reformat my projects on the app.
Data breach
by Resa1219 on 2019/11/25 13:06
Update 11/25 Thanks I received your message however I don’t think that you realize that you must still have a problem because my credit card company just found my email was breached by your app this month. Not last May when you claimed this happened. I only started using this app in May. Please check your app to ensure there are no further breaches. Original I am just wondering if you all know you had a data breach because I haven’t received any emails from you about it however my credit card company found my email on the dark web due to a Canva data breach. Maybe look into this and close your security holes!
Beware no security

App forcing me to do free trial on Pro

I have Pro, but it won’t let me use my Pro
by Briskly devil on 2019/11/23 22:37
I have been using Canva for my personal business. It has been the absolute best tool ever to use. Today when I logged in to use my pro, I pay monthly for this, it is telling me I don’t have access. When I checked my subscriptions..I just paid for Canva on Nov 22nd. I even stopped my subscription and re started it. Still gives me an error message and won’t let me use the Pro that h pay for. Please fix this!
Amazing

Great templates, infinite possibilities.
Several data breaches
by heliotropin on 2019/11/23 15:46
I originally downloaded Canva thinking it would be a great easy way to create interesting things. I didn’t use it too much, but over the course of a year my email address has been found on the dark web twice because of signing up with Canva. My other information does not appear to be stolen, and my password doesn’t appear to have been compromised, however the fact that my private information keeps getting breached because of Canva, I’ve closed out my account and will not use them again. I recommend everyone monitoring their personal data because I don’t think Canva is doing enough to protect it. I wish I had the ability to upload a screenshot showing the data breach was directly attached to Canva.
Very difficult
by @#catintheflame on 2019/11/23 08:18
If I click on a column it will just go to something else so I can’t edit it it’s terrible and you should never get it
Love it but...
by Pajflower on 2019/11/23 02:40
Here’s a note to the creators....can you keep the current project saved so if I move from this app to the internet it will save my current project without me having to start all over. That’s annoying. Thank you!

Garbage
by jdshaw1 on 2019/11/22 03:46
The Canva is extremely sensitive to every touch and you will probably waste most of your time fixing pieces of your design work that you accidentally messed up. The website is amazing and I would give that five stars but the app is extremely frustrating. I have spent three times as much time working on something I could have completed on the website in no time. Very disappointing.
Best to worst
by judgymom on 2019/11/22 01:10

App not saving work, support not accessible.
by JulieSoJoyful on 2019/11/21 15:16
Although I have successfully used this app in the past Recently I tried multiple times to save A design with no luck. It just freezes up. The app is up to date. I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max, the iOS software is also up to date. Then when I go to contact support in the App Store it takes me to the app rather than an email to report a problem. I have also tried their website under ‘support’ with 0 results. Would never purchase the pro version with these problems unresolved.
HORRIBLE
by spencerclintok on 2019/11/21 13:52

Incredibly Impressed
by 8biteight on 2019/11/20 11:52
I’m a web/UX designer with limited knowledge of how to design for print and I had a client that needed a brochure made. I took a chance on Canva with the free trial and I am completely blown away. Exactly what I needed, just enough freedom to design freely and pretty foolproof. AMAZING UX DESIGN! I was able to make what I needed quickly without stressing about the interface and learning a new tool. I felt compelled to write a review just to say I think your app & web app is one of the best I’ve ever used. There were only a couple things I couldn’t do: 1) add drop shadow/borders to images, 2) change credit card info at checkout. Thanks, Canva! Great app!
Not a suitable app for iPad
by Marrrrri160 on 2019/11/20 04:01
The Canva app does not seem completely compatible with my iPad. It frequently crashes, restarts the app, freezes up, and it doesn’t seem to sense where I’m tapping on the screen. Every time I want to grab a text or other element, it never allows me to grab the element I want to grab, it always picks a different element up — and this is with me using my finger or my Apple Pencil. This happens multiple time with every use causing me to get frustrated. I am considering cancelling my Canva subscription because it is just not compatible with iPads.
USELESS
by ShopBeau.De on 2019/11/19 22:20
For some reason it saves my images blurry. And no matter how many times I close out and restart the app or restart my iPad it doesn’t fix the problem. I’ve updated my system and everything. It’s quite frustrating. Overall it is a decent app to design on and I recommend beginners to use this as it’s very beginner friendly.

I have been using Canvas for a while now for everything. It’s awesome and eye catching to my clients. It’s affordable for me due to just opening up a business. I really appreciate this company.
Great app but...
by Jberg42 on 2019/11/19 03:20
I love this app and it’s helped me create great designs for my business, the only downside is how often it crashes! The last 6 months I’ve been using it, I don’t think I’ve created a full design without it crashing, sometimes it saves all your work, other times just saves some of it. This has become a huge frustration and has me looking for other apps to do the same stuff. I also think that $13 a month is a little pricey and out of my price range, I wish there was a less expensive version with the ability to download and save without a background and have the ability to save brand fonts and more than 3 colors but maybe still have to pay for the graphics and stuff that are not free.
Best tool for business owners
by exyangie on 2019/11/18 23:40
Don’t hire a graphic designer, buy Canva. It’s super easy, has tons of options and is pretty fun to be honest. I love it.
Doesn’t let you redownload
by 504vegan on 2019/11/18 20:54
Good app but if you already downloaded your design it forces you to repay for the elements you already purchase if you need to download again
Errors
by Nicb360 on 2019/11/18 17:55
The moment I subscribe to Canva Pro the app is down where I can’t upload pictures or make edits. First impressions are everything and this isn’t a great one.
Doesn’t save anything
by Debbiemo on 2019/11/18 17:31
I can’t save any of my work. This is extremely infuriating. Please fix this.
iPad App Lacks Control
by jessa2701 on 2019/11/18 16:27
The desktop version of Canva is great. I hoped to have the same experience on the go on my iPad and iPhone, but I can’t click on design elements, drag things, or even edit text with control or precision. It is very glitchy! I basically use the apps to access files I’ve created on the computer.
App changes language/location automatically
by Cimile1979 on 2019/11/18 10:39
I was fine with this app but haven’t used in a while. Then the next time I tried to use it - it sends me to China version. I am located in China but I don’t want to use canva.cn, I want to use the normal english version, and there is no option in app to change this. Nothing pisses me off more than when apps do this kind of stuff so I uninstalled it.
Fix dual screen
by joe18293joe 69 on 2019/11/18 01:17
This app would be so much better if i was able to have two apps opened at the same time side by side (like safari for example). It also makes it so difficult to work with the text option its so annoying to use, unresponsive at times.
I LOVE the app but...
by JTHudd on 2019/11/17 20:16
I started using Canva after my teacher had us use it for an assignment and I've used it ever since for my Instagram posts and such, but I'm writing this to report a bug. The app won't allow me to sign in. I try signing in to my school account and when I put in my password it says "We're sorry. Something unexpected happened and we couldn't log you in right now." I know it's the right one because when I try other passwords it simply says that I entered the wrong password. I've also tried logging in with Facebook but when I come back to the app from Facebook, it says "Logging in" forever. As I said in the title, I absolutely LOVE the app, but I just can't log in.

I just got a notification from an app that watches the dark web to see if my information has been stolen and it said that my email was found on the dark web and was stolen from Canva. So they have been hacked.
Keeps saying error
by Ca1vin G on 2019/11/17 15:06
Every time I start editing a template, it says “Problem saving recent changes. We encountered an error while saving your design. Please close the editor and reopen the design”
Good app but...
by Perfectsadie on 2019/11/17 15:02
So far I’ve only made one project with this app and it was great. Easy to use, good options for fonts, backgrounds, etc. I’m giving it three stars though because while if simply buying font upgrades or whatever were an option I would probably do it, I HATE subscription apps!!! Actually, hate is an understatement. I detest finding an app I like (but wouldn’t use terribly often) but can only get the full version with a subscription I’d rarely use. Why would I pay for a monthly fee for a product I may only use four times over a year?! I’d gladly fork over some cash to “own” a more than what comes free so I can use it for years, but a subscription where I “own” nothing at the end when I wouldn’t use it every day anyway? No thanks. Long story short, good app but having to subscribe kills it for me.

I enjoy this Application. I prefer working on it from the computer but the mobile application is quite convenient itself.
So easy.
by kaylafox19 on 2019/11/17 09:08
I love Canva for the ease of use and the variety of options you are given for free. I’ve purchased some in-app offers and am very pleased.
One of my fave editing apps!
by akosmopolite on 2019/11/17 03:46
Canva is the 💣. I use this app along with a few others for my YouTube channel video thumbnails, Instagram, Facebook and other creative ideas. It’s versatile. What I can’t find on Canva, I just switch to other apps like PicsArt and edit my photo in between the two apps. Right now can’t think of what I’d suggest. Maybe more elements/transparent images/masks to use or overlay over an image.
Dark web?

The prints didn’t arrive on time! Awful customer service.
by ohju321 on 2019/11/16 02:21
I picked this app because is fast and easy to use. They guarantee me to get the brochure prints on time for an important event today but I didn’t got them. The customer service is awful. I was trying the hole day to contact them but I only got standard answers back. Very unsatisfied.
OK but buggy enough to make unusable
by Sadie_Pichon on 2019/11/16 02:20
The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because I love the app when it works. However, the recent update makes me need to use another app. It freezes quite often, particularly when I’m trying to view pages or the text is too long. But the worst is that if I click into another app, even a web browser, ALL of my work is lost. Time and time again I have lost hours of work because I needed to Google something. Ugh.
Terrible on IOS
by writerthehall on 2019/11/16 01:24
I’ve loved this app on Android but it doesn’t work for IOS. It won’t let you edit the last sentence and last letter of text. Every time it just cancels out. This app is amazing for Android. Don’t bother for IOS.
Incredible Tool for Small Business Owners
by MmeganKkate on 2019/11/15 21:20
Canva has made it easy for me to do so many things that make a huge impact on my business. I have no experience with graphic design, but it is extremely user friendly. Canva has allowed me to execute projects on my own that I would previously outsource. I’ve designed investor pitch decks, social media graphics, promotional materials, business cards .... and COUNTLESS other things. I’ve even designed my family Christmas cards on Canva! I normally use the desktop version, but the mobile app is also amazing when designing on the go! Kudos to the creators of this program. I’m sure I’m not the only user benefiting so much from all Canva has to offer.
Love this app but...
by anchuchak on 2019/11/15 19:04
I use it for everything but I don’t get why like apps like Over and Instories I can’t upload downloaded fonts directly to the mobile app. It shouldn’t be that difficult.
So Simple
by Ricci Bryan on 2018/11/03 03:37
This app is so simple to use. There are a few quirky things. #1 Once I load a photo into the app from my album, you can’t remove it. #2 You can’t add multiple photos in a design or I haven’t figured it out. It’s a one photo per design app. I do love that they’ve now added the ability to add two different fonts in a design. #3 Doesn’t allow you to name designs. #4 it doesn’t allow me to save the different variations of my work. For example one of my insta posts was done with 3 different color backgrounds, B&W, and a faded effect. Each time I modify it, the work I wanted to keep is overwritten instead of it creating addt’l files with all variations. I now export before I make changes. It can challenging when you have 30+ social media accts for six companies. #5 I have to modify a design in order for it to save to ‘my designs’ as opposed to just selecting it and others to determine what I want to use. Overall, the app works great, it has so many options to make it happen. I use this app in addition to a few others in combination since you can’t photoshop in this app. I love anything that makes my life easy and Canva does that!!
Canva... the app we all want to love
by blogbarger on 2018/12/21 06:00
Let’s start with the good. It’s 2018 and nobody makes a (sort of) desktop publishing app for iOS except Canva. So kudos for taking this project on. That said, the app is so painstakingly frustrating, I’m kind of amazed I still use it. It crashes all the time, weird changes are made when I go to save (wasting precious time), and lots of other very quirky things. Example. When working with text, in order to exit edit text mode, one has to click done. That alone takes forever, but after hitting done no matter what page I’m on in a document, the app leaps forward to the last page. Another example. Try renaming a file. It crashes every single time. Try renaming it again. This time it works. Every single time. The list goes on and on, and things load oh so slowly. So long story short. This app isn’t ready for the field. It’s hardly even beta worthy. But we all still use it. Why? Because there’s nothing else out there for iOS. The moral of the story is that we need other developers to begin working on publishing apps so that we not only have a choice, but so that Canva has some competition. The developers respond quickly, roll out updates, and make promises, but bottom line is the app still remains broken. Honestly, it’s such a chore to use. There is nothing enjoyable about the app and all I hear out there is that when we go to work on a project.... we just pray we can make it through. Upward and onward.
Still some oddities in the system
by A.C. Groffman on 2019/04/22 01:21
EDIT: Previously, I had written a negative review saying that a recent update had essentially removed every feature of the app that I used for my designs, background color editing among this number. I am happy to say that, for the most part, those features have been restored. I am able to access and edit all my designs on my iPad, and the completion of the update has made usage fairly easy. However, there are still some large issues that need to be fixed which prevent me from giving this app five stars. For starters, I cannot access any templates on my iPad. If I click on the Templates button, nothing appears. I have tried this multiple times; every other tab under the + button works exactly as intended, but it has been a month or so now and I can’t access any templates. This is a pretty big issue for me; the vast majority of my designs use a specific template. The second issue I have is that I still cannot edit background colors on my iPad. This is also a large aspect of my designs, and right now that means I have to switch to my laptop to be able to actually get the design I want. I’d quickly change this review to five stars if these factors were fixed, but for now this remains a frustration for me.
HATE the Updated iPad App
by LennyPam on 2018/11/11 03:48
I’m a long time Canva user and absolutely loved this app. I use it all the time for all my blog graphics. However, Canva recently updated the software for iPad and now I hate it. What was once an easy to use app, is now cumbersome, has less functionality, less ease of use, less user friendly, less everything except the amount of time it takes to create a new graphic. It has got to be about 200% slower. It works very similarly to the iPhone app - which I hate. If I can’t use the old interface, I’m gonna be forced to switch apps. Please don’t make me switch. Don’t make the iPad app function as poorly as the iPhone app. I need speed, ease of use and lots of functionality that works well on my iPad. Not my iPhone, but my iPad. I also can’t edit any of my saved files in Canva as I receive a compatibility error message. PLEASE FIX THIS!! PLEASE AT LEAST GIVE US THE OPTION OF USING THE OLDER VERSION. I HATE THE UPDATED IPAD VERSION. SERIOUSLY. HATE IT! I CAN’T EVEN USE IT, BECAUSE IT JUST SITS THERE FOREVER SPINNING, TRYING TO LOAD AND CAN’T. PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE US BACK THE OLD VERSION. PLEASE. How about if you do away with the iPhone version and just use the old iPad app? That’s a great idea! Or make the iPhone a limited functionality (which, it essentially is). Please give me back the Canva I loved! I am extremely busy, carry my iPad with me everywhere I go and use Canva all the time. Please do something about this!
Leaked my password to darkweb
by Kayla0725 on 2019/08/23 19:20
So I wish I could rate this higher, because it was pretty easy to design the business card I wanted, it was easier when I went to the website. I was able to make it in 20 minutes on the website vs an hour messing around in the app. However when I tried to purchase the card it would not accept my card, it kept getting errors. The next morning I saw it tried to charge and then refund my card 3 times so not sure what happened there. Still it refunded all of them so no loss of money, just frustrating. I then took a break before trying again to purchase the card I wanted, but in that time I got an alert from Credit Karma that I had had a security breach and my password was found on the darkweb. The site that had the breach? Canva. Now I’ve had to deal with changing any website that I’ve ever used a variation of the password I used there, and it’s not every app and website, but it’s enough to be a lasting headache. TLDR liked the card I made, but I couldn’t purchase it and they weren’t secure enough not to leak my password. 1 star.
The update ruined everything
by Steph Pen on 2019/04/20 18:24
I used to really like this app, and I would use it all the time like 9 months ago, and I’ve been using it since, just not as much because it’s changed a lot and it’s getting so hard and annoying to work with now. First of all, the college lay out I would use the most is no longer on the app, which makes me really mad since it was my favorite one. Secondly, whenever I save something, it saves completely different than what I originally had. It takes me opening and saving it again 3 more times to get close to how I wanted it to save in the first place. Lastly, editing is getting SO annoying and hard now. Before, editing a picture within a collage was really easy, just double tapping and zooming in or out. Last month, whenever I double tapped the picture, there was a lot of pictures and lines overlapping each other which made it really confusing and annoying to edit, but now, I can’t even do that. Whenever I double tap a picture now, it takes up the space of the entire collage and it doesn’t even let me edit it. It doesn’t let me zoom in, out, or even let me move it around, it just goes back to how it was. This is really stressing me out, and I use to really love this app. Please let me know if there’s a way to fix this, because it’s very hard to use the app for all these reasons.
Canva is the best!
by Laura Mellark on 2019/02/13 07:52
I have been using Canva for a while now and it has never disappointed me. Never! Sure there’s paid elements to site but the free options are just as high quality and I can always find what I need in the free options. I use Canva for making programs for my children’s theater productions, posters for my sister’s band events, invitations for all my occasions, and literally every other need I have for graphic design. I sent the last program I made to a professional printer to have them stapled and put together to save time on our end, and they said the file was absolutely perfectly made and laid out. They even said they were going to start using Canva too and recommending it to their other customers. I can’t express enough how much I love Canva! Now I do prefer the website just because it’s on a bigger screen buuuuuut, you have almost all the options in the app as you do online. And you can save designs right to you phone. Anyway, Canva is an excellent service!
New update: why?
by Selena_Ewing on 2018/11/09 05:13
I believe that the functionality of the design has gone down with the new interface update. Viewing my projects was way easier in the previous design. I find it harder to add in my own logos from external applications. The reason I loved this App was because I could be creative while on the go with my iPad or iPhone but now I will have to return to using the Website version to make the process easier on me which is not favorable. Please don't prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
New Version is not worth it
by LTWOODRING on 2019/11/07 14:28
I used to LOVEEEEEEE Canva. I did all of my real estate marketing graphics with it and I was really impressed with the product and the ease of use. After the update to iPhone and iPad the app has been crashing and flickering between pages. I feel the new version allows for less customization and doesn’t use all of the screen space on my iPad Pro which feels like I’m straining to see all the details of my designs. Other annoying things like having to use the search feature to find items like “lines” make this new version almost not worth using. **UPDATE** still using Canva, but still not happy with the ever-changing interface. Y’all are really desperate to get money these days. Now, I can’t even pick a font without having to navigate between free fonts and premium fonts (the free fonts used to be listed at the top, the premium fonts at the bottom. Now, they’re all mixed in). I guess this is what happens when your fav apps start charging users money. I just don’t have a reason to pay a monthly subscription for this yet....and I see there was some sort of security breach for paying users SMH
Best design app for us novice/intermediate folks!
by piperlou on 2019/01/05 06:52
This is a great design app! Especially for those of us that love to design but don’t have all our skills honed in on Adobe ID or photoshop. Great tool and love using it for work and my side hustle! 2 suggestions one: wish you could put “your designs” in folders so I could keep my work and side projects separately. Two: when you find a graphic you like I wish it would give you the key words associated with the graphics (like tags)so you could search for more like it or just keep track of designs. A itty bitty complaint but no deal breaker—- I like the 2.0 version but it is a little irritating that I can start a design on my laptop and finish on my iPad because I used a different version. Not that big of a deal I just have to remember to start the project on 1.0. So many options and so user friendly! I have told many of my friends about this great app. I see it only getting better! 🤗
New updates make app useless
by Crazykellsbells on 2018/11/23 22:20
I’m a long-time Canva user and have the yearly business account, which I use often. I was thrilled when they first came out with a mobile app and have also used this frequently and had it work fine. However, in the past month or so they have introduced new updates to the app which have made it completely useless. It crashes every 30 seconds when you are trying to edit (not an exaggeration!), so you can’t use it to make any new projects. I often use it on the go to make small edits to Instagram templates for my company’s social media accounts, but even something as simple as editing a color causes it to crash. I usually buckle through and after many crashes and swear words I can get the minor edits done, but then when I actually go to save my project it will export without any of the new edits and I end up with an old version of the file. I’ve taken to screenshotting my final project in order to use it. Super frustrating, and I hope the developers fix these issues soon. Even my husband knows how much I hate the app issues because I complain about it every time I try to use it!
I love it but it's frustrating
by -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ- on 2018/10/17 04:39
I use this all the time on my laptop and I love how simple it is on there and everything is just convenient and easy, but since I can't use my laptop for some reason I'm not getting that same experience on my phone. It's a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it's harder for me to find them and control, I can't change the sizes of my pictures and I can't copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it's stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don't like the size or something else I can't add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can't make the exact changes I want. I also noticed that some of my old savings have fonts but I saved through phone some of them are gone and I can't get them back again :( other than that I'm really happy there is a app version! I also really like that you can have your work every where and other devices! Thats really smart!
PHENOMENAL OKAY!!
by prettyloaf on 2019/07/26 02:50
This app is amazing. I started a new job , while the owner of the company was in the middle of getting things organized and up and running completely. So she asked me to make her some name tags, why in heavens did she pick me I have no idea, I didn’t even know where to start... well I just so happened to type in “make your own name tag” on google and “Canva” was an option under apps. Well I downloaded it and it was completely easy .. the name tags I made game out AMAZING. I could make the font , the size I mean whatever I dreamed of was right there for me to edit. I edited my name tags made them completely to my liking of vision , emailed them and then had them printed off and eliminated at a near by fed ex kinkos. MY BOSS WAS IN LOVE and they look completely professional! I now have a way to make future employees name tags and also received a pay raise !! I love the genius whose behind this app and THANK YOU CANVA!! You rock
Too difficult to login from phone. No help from Canva
by Lorrenb1 on 2018/09/02 01:02
I find Canva okay. The app itself is great however, i’ve noticed that I can always login in on my computer but it gives me issues logging in from my phone. It won’t ever send me the reset password link if I do it from my phone. It’ll just tell me to make sure that I have the most updated version of the app and to try again even though I already do. Trying to find customer service contact info is nowhere near easy on the app and when I tried to use safari to access the website from my phone it ONLY redirected me to use the app which was already unsuccessful. As you can imagine this was a frustrating rabbit hole. I had to find an old email from Canva which has a customer service link. But when I sent a request in twice, they told me I would hear something back soon and I have heard nothing. That was last week. It should not be this difficult to get in contact with the company. Other than that, I love the app and all the options it offers once I’m able to use it. I just want to be able to use it with ease.
Photo Folders
by HeatherLandry on 2019/05/20 13:51
May 2019: Thanks for the response, but I don’t use the app much, so I probably won’t bother contacting you. You didn’t even say whether I’m supposed to have access to custom folders or not. I’m referring to folders you create on your PC and sync to your iPhone. Should I be able to access those? Some apps don’t allow it. Thx. Jan 2019: I wish I could try out more designs and features, but I just have no patience for the extremely rare app that doesn’t give the user access to their custom photo albums (folders you transfer to your iPhone through iTunes). Am I really the only person who uses these albums? Because I’m always shocked when an app somehow doesn’t consider access to them important. Sometimes this can be the result of a glitch in the app. I have the same issue with Messenger, and used to have this problem with Facebook, but it was finally corrected. So if the problem is on my end, let me know, and I’ll add more stars to my rating. You can email me at “heatherlandry” through Gmail if you want to.
Very good app
by Mrclutch420 on 2019/11/06 00:17
They’re always trying to improve this app and they’re very much on top of things. I use this app nearly every day to make edits and designs and it has been extremely helpful for me. With every app, it takes some time to getting used to, but it’s a great app! 👍🏻 Ps, there has been an issue lately where the app closes an edit if you leave the app for even like 1 minute. It makes you re-open the edit over and over again. This is the only issue I have ever really had. Also when I saved my edits, the fonts would sometimes move around. You can get past this by simply screenshotting the pic, and then cropping it in your phone:) hope that helps someone out there! I have confidence that the Canva team will continue to make improvements and fix these minor issues.
Not worth subscribing for
by Treyvon03 on 2019/04/23 07:47
I’m not one to leave reviews because I genuinely find great apps to use and those that I don’t like I get rid of immediately. As for Canva, a service I’ve used for years(on desktop) I didn’t expect the app to work the way it did. Working on a basic level without any pro-level editing I tried to create a document, and the app wouldn’t do what I wanted. Fearing that it was just because I was using the free version I paid for the subscription, and that didn’t fix my issues. Frames wouldn’t line up, adding text was insanely difficult, and subscribing to any of there services is a complete waste of time and our money. In addition to those issue the app was filled with other frustrating things, it crashes, freezes, and restarting my phone won’t work for this app (I have a new phone). I’ve reached out to Apple and they weren’t able to help because this was completely on mine and Canvas behalf. DON’T GET TRICKED LIKE I DID, DON’T DEPEND ONTHE MOBILE VERSION, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DON’T BUY ANY SERVICES FROM CANVA. Hopefully, they fix there problems and QUIT SCAMMING it’s user because this truly had been a great service and now I’ve lost trust.
A Beautiful Mess
by PixyChic5.0 on 2019/10/17 13:32
First things first. Love the fact that Canva has beautifully made templates that are ready to use with your own text and images. Or, you can use their gorgeous free images (only non-pro version images). Makes creating graphics a little easier. Canvas creating abilities are unmatched, to my knowledge with the ability to create such a vast array of features and documents, like social media graphics, letterhead, book covers, calendars, posters, flyers, and beyond. Plus, it’s capable of resizing and adding and duplicating pages and graphics easily. I use Adobe Post, Over, and Desygner. They have lots of features, but don’t quite match up to Canva...yet. Unfortunately, Canva is quite unreliable in creating graphics quickly on IOS and desktop as it takes several taps or clicks when attempting to edit text or move other graphics around. So, it takes triple the time to create graphics due to this glitch or imperfection. Grrr. Hoping that Canva developers will resolve this issue soon.
Help
by VV1956 on 2018/12/28 02:52
I really really want to like this app and website. I recently downloaded to iPhone, iPad and website on Mac. There seems to be limited help and support for figuring out how to do things. The tutorials are extremely basic and I’m struggling with completing a few tasks. The potential is huge but the iPad app to so very basic you can’t do much. You cannot got to the web version in Safari because it forces you to use the iPad app instead. I’ve tried to email support for help but there is no support so I ended up finding a link stating something was broken. We’ll see if the developer answers. There needs to be a better system for figuring out to use this. I am trying to navigate within the website version on my Mac because that’s really where this shines however some of it doesn’t take any sense. For example, I created a logo but cant seem to use it anywhere or create other things I need like business cards, postcards, website banner etc. using that exact same logo. It should be easier. Help!
Great for what it does but could be better
by Gabneg on 2019/03/12 21:04
I wish a few tweaks were made to make it more efficient. First, I wish I could filter through free images but it won’t let me. I get the pop up message telling me to upgrade. If it’s not available on the free version then don’t make it an option. It’s so time consuming scrolling through hundreds of images/graphics trying to find free ones but hey it’s the price I don’t pay 😊 I wish I was able to save different versions of my designs. Just because I change one aspect of it doesn’t mean I want the current version saved/overwritten. Now I have to make a copy make the changes there then save that copy as my other edited version which is a pain and can be easily fixed. I also wish there was an option that would allow me to write/draw On my designs. Overall, it’s great for what I need it to do but minor tweaks could make it that much more amazing.
Finally gave up on paid subscription
by midtnmomma on 2019/09/22 13:18
I’ve been using Canva for over two years, and had the paid subscription for the past year. I used the mobile version almost exclusively, and it had issues more often than it actually worked as expected. I wrote a review one time and attempted to get help only to be told “we can’t replicate the issue”, and coincidentally, there was an update after I submitted the issue that fixed the problem. It crashes, features don’t perform the way they should, most recently, it failed repeatedly to save a very simple graphic over multiple attempts in a 24 hour period. I’ve cancelled the subscription and will be using other apps that are more dependable. Not to mention it seems as though the “free” illustration options improved under the paid service-items I don’t recall being able to use when I wasn’t paying were now showing as though they were available for free...confusing, and such a disappointment because I do like the simplicity of the app.
New Update with many flaws
by User 071010 on 2018/12/31 08:08
This app was initially a great app. It’s easy of use and the ability to edit on your mobile device was great. Unfortunately, with the new update there are many bugs which makes the app very frustrating. I find that I have to go back to the computer to do all my work. The app doesn’t save the changes I make to blurring images so nothing saves and I have to wait until I have a desktop to make the changes. Also, with the new web version, you can’t edit some of your designs in the app. You have to go to the web application. If someone shares a design with you, you can’t edit it on the mobile app. You have to go to a desktop. The mobile site forces you to use the mobile app so you can’t get around it and you have to wait and plan to have everything done on your desktop eliminating the convenience of a mobile app. Overall, I think the design options and what it has done for us who have little to design skill is great and I appreciate that, but the level of frustration with the mobile app is so frustrating!
Disappointed. Is it just the update?!?
by sizzle iphone on 2019/02/09 14:47
I really wanted to love this app. I created a small project before and the experience was good. I have to agree with others that the recent update for iPad is not good. As I’m trying to work on a presentation, I find the iPad app is incredibly frustrating to use now. Changing the text on a page template requires severe tapping or holding to bring up the edit fields. And when you click done, each time the window closes and takes you to the last page instead of the template you were working on. It’s taking three times as long to finish something so simple. Also the template “layout” I want to use doesn’t show up on the iPad. So I had to add the template to my designs in the online version in order to see it on iPad. Giving up on the iPad version and going to use the online version on desktop to finish the project I started. But to say the least, I’m disappointed because I am looking for a good iPad app that has the creativity and functionality.
Was ok, but now you have to pay...
by MaloryB on 2019/04/19 16:11
From recommendations from others, I started using this app and absolutely loved it...even though some of the pics weren’t great quality at times, when downloading pdf versions my items were missing or in different places all over my projects (I still managed to make it work out ok in other ways), and trying to save or edit my projects at times took too long. Because others loved this so much and even used it for their projects (and because I didn’t know of any other apps to use because this was so easy to use when I first started), I have kept this app. Now, to use some of the features I frequently used, I have to pay. I’m sorry to sound negative, but at first...this was such an awesome app. And ever since I first started using it last year, every update that’s happened, this app has started become one I don’t go to as much as I did at the beginning. I don’t mind a onetime fee if it’s #1...affordable...and #2...worth the cost. Sorry.
Canva is the shiiiiizzzz

Seriously this has to be one of my favorite programs to use and the fact that you can do sooooo much with the free version alone is incredible and I had zero apprehension about buying the service bc this company is beyond generous! From the free version, to the customer support, I have had the BEST experience and have introduced a dozen other people to this program who also love it! Super easy to use and both desktop, and app versions are great! (Few bugs in the app, but overall good stuff) You won’t be disappointed unless you are just a miserable human who enjoys finding fault in everything! If you don’t like Canva even the tiniest bit, you’re probably someone who also hates sunshine, cute baby animals, and doesn’t believe in climate change 😂
0/5
by Johnnykush87 on 2019/10/06 21:18
I used this program for a while and thought it was great at first. The templates are straightforward and plentiful. Then I realized just how unstable it is. Not only does it crash all the time and delete progress but it also rearranges everything you put down in the slightest way so as to goof up everything. Then I got an email from my internet protection service alerting me that can a had gotten hacked and that they my personal information. Ever since then I’ve been dealing with hackers trying to get into all of my accounts. Just yesterday I had to cancel my debit card because some people who lifted my login and personal info from Canva started spending my money. I’d rate this app as 0/10 if I could because it’s been nothing but a headache from the start. I just wish I could go back in time and never make an account in the first place.
I keep getting logged out
by predictivetextwrotethis on 2019/04/15 15:24
This app would get a 5 star rating if it didn’t boot me out every few days. When I try to sign back in with Facebook, it loads Facebook, I hit continue, the “sign in” button turns gray with a loading graphic, then it just turns green and says “sign in” again... back to square one. I have to close the app out and try it several times over before I can get back in. Also a little annoying that I can’t work on ANYTHING in the app without internet. If I lose signal for a minute, in the middle of working on something displays up a pop up notification that I’m not online and then closes out my work with no progress saved. If it had done nothing and let me keep doing what i was doing until the signal came back it would have been fine. 🤦🏼‍♀️ so, a few bugs, but the app overall is a good one.
Update rendered Canva unusable on iPad Pro
by Gx Cori on 2018/11/25 08:26
My camera roll does not show in this new Canva and frankly I hate that I no longer can work on Canva in Landscape mode on iPad Pro. Was my main reason for using Canva above others. Horrible update. I will be finding something else to use. I wanted to add I don’t like the desktop version updates either. I had forever been trying to test out the video option and couldn’t find it. This totally set back our Black Friday prep, I was literally about to pay for a subscription when I started seeing all the updates. I use Promo-Republic to post to social media, because of the metrics, but their editor is horrible, so I would make Canva graphics to import and use instead. Their editor is now better than Canva, but that’s not saying much. They have no iPad app. But at least I can use it web based in portrait mode on my iPad. Right before holidays is a terrible time to update especially when so many small businesses depend on Canva. I had to go to Adobe Spark...poor substitute, ugh. Canva fix all of it!
SO frustrating
by AshlanMarie on 2018/10/25 20:18
I loved this app for about a month while using it to create instagram posts and blog graphics from my phone. Everything was great...until out of nowhere the app stopped working. Even after redownloading the app, restarting my phone and even going so far as to contact “customer service” (who, by the way, never contacted me back) I have been having issues where when I go to create or edit a template my designs will not be saved or as I’m attempting to save the image graphics, text and whatnot get moved/displaced. The only way I can get around it sometimes is by having to screenshot my finished work then going into my photos and cropping everything else out which leads to poor resolution. That worked for maybe a week before I experienced another issue where when I go to move graphics or text it gets completely sent off the screen/resized and I’m unable to put it back to the sizing I need. Even after using the “undo” arrow when I attempt to move my work around AGAIN it does the SAME THING before the app just crashes and kicks me out. It now takes me over 2 hours to complete something that would only take me MAYBE 20 minutes before. I’m so frustrated with this app and so disappointed after receiving such great service the first month of use. My phone and the app are both up to date with no technical issues. I have yet to try this on my iPad out of fear I’ll just grow more frustrated.
Unusable now. I had to delete the app
by wantwinter on 2019/10/16 21:53
It’s been months since I used the app, so I was stunned to open it and find that literally nothing works anymore. I can’t delete text to add my own, the keyboard vanishes when you need to use it and it won’t come back, double-tapping to edit doesn’t work—even trying to delete does nothing. How did you blow up a good app so thoroughly? Even more, how did you test the results and say “Yeah this is ready for people to use?” I mean ??? I just hope there’s a decent alternative because Canva is worthless now. And please don’t reply with the usual “reach out so we can help”. The reviews have been awful since last November. If you cared about fixing it, you’d have done so by now. Just updated, app won’t take my password
I use this for everything I need! Great for on the go too!
by SemsThoughts on 2019/11/27 20:04
Working within a volunteer position at an association I have tried pretty much every tool out there to help design social media posts, to activity books & reports. Canva (both desktop & the app), have really been a life saver on multiple fronts. It's pretty easy to use & create anything in a pinch when it comes to creating quickly or on the go. Their library has expanded & I love when they roll out new features like motion in Instagram stories. I truly can not recommend it enough. On a personal note, I have used their resume templates & have received great feedback from employers to help give me a boost in career selections for jobs. I really do have Canva to thank for my employment! You helped me nail my job :)
Love this app but a few frustrating glitches
by aengman87 on 2019/09/30 10:49
Absolutely love this app but very frustrated with a few glitches, as I use this proffesionally and keep running into the same issues. Issues are as follows: when making a design and everything is aligned perfect and ready to save, after saving the graphic is saved differently than the graphic that was finalized. Text moves, words over lap, animations move locations, or alignment changes. In addition, when using the video feature, the logo is no longer transparent. I pay for the premium version and unfortunately a few times realized the changes after already sharing the graphic to social accounts. Sometimes ill fix and change multiple times only for it to happen again and again. It seems I am saving 10 different versions of each graphic before getting the one I finalized.
Canva is great, but there’s a few minor glitches
by chin-yi_kong on 2019/06/07 18:07
I love canva so, so much. All the templates and images and illustrations are so cute. Although i’m fairly new to canva, there are some things that i’ve done before that it won’t let me do now. For example, i put a polaroid frame onto my card. Then, i tried to put a picture in it. I’ve done this so many times before, but now it won’t let me. The picture just sits on top of the frame instead of actually going in it. This isn’t a major problem, but it is one that should be fixed. Maybe i’m just doing it wrong, but i’ve done it before. I don’t really understand why it’s not working now. Other than this small glitch, Canva is such a fun app to make collages and things like that. I love it so much!
Canva for Mobile
by ChoosingGrace on 2019/07/27 17:47
I have been using Canva on desktop for a while now and enjoyed it. I recently downloaded the app and have been using it and overall my experience has been good and without many issues. However sometimes my download of Instagram story pictures failed to download from the main photo gallery. Though I’ve found that this can be remedied by clicking on the download button on the editing page. I would also like to have the ability to consolidate and separate pictures as well as recombine or combine them like I can on desktop. Their app seems to allow me to only separate photos from being combined, however, I could just be unaware of where that feature is in the app. Overall, I am enjoying my time using the app and I have no complaints to speak of.
Just sick over the newest update
by G.Parish on 2018/11/24 06:57
I just used the app on my iPad this morning and created a couple wonderful easy ads. Then I updated to the latest update. What a shock when I went to Canva to create a quick image a few minutes ago and the whole thing was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! Now I cannot use it in landscape mode, it is stuck in portrait, and my usual pictures I had in my account (not on my camera roll, but downloaded ones) are no longer there. The whole thing is a lot harder to use. The whole user interface seems to have a lot more hoops to jump through. Did someone think this would be be better? I love Canva, and use it all the time on both my desktop computer and the iPad. Now I guess I can’t use it on the iPad anymore. This change was a BAD idea. I’m glad I found out before I upgraded to Canva for Work. I was going to do that this week, but now I’m not even sure I’ll stick with Canva. I am one unhappy user. Please, please, please can we have it back how it was before?
Good app but buggy sometimes
by Brian8253 on 2019/10/09 19:08
I’ve experienced good things and bad things on this app but I will still give it a 5 star because I’m sure it’s just some bugs. I’ll be in the middle of creating an Instagram post and the page gets stuck sometimes scrolled down. When I go to fix this or refresh the app it deleted my work 🤦🏼‍♂️ slightly upset but nothing to freak about. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my connection to the internet or what but just something I thought I would give as some feedback to the developers. I’m using the new IPhone 11 so that may have something to do with it but other then the small bugs and screen getting stuck in some spots it’s a great app!!! Definitely considering going premium!

by darksbane7 on 2018/09/07 13:08
ive used a plethora of photo editing apps, and have not met one that works like this. ive seen a few that might look like they compare but they all cost money, so finding an app with as many great features and usages as canvas provides without having to spend a dime is incredible. the ads on here are not annoying what so ever so thats a big plus. everything is really easy and simple, and you come out with great high quality work. i highly suggest this app for everyone, especially towards people who havent found their picture perfect photo editor. i searched for over four years before finding canvas and im really glad to say i can end that search now. as a user i definitely want to help improve and bring more people to this app, this is the type of app you genuinely get excited about and want to share with others who have the same hobbies. i would however suggest making the undo/redo button more apparent, it doesnt stand out really well and it looks like there is no redo button if you accidentally click undo. at the end of the day i love this app and im extremely pleased with what has been produced 🤠🤠🤠🤠👍
Great- but only to a point
by ig:abiidavyy on 2019/10/22 05:39
I’ve been using Canva for years, but recently the app has become glitchy and overall unreliable. Where I used to be able to depend on Canva to create social media posts via my iPhone, I’m now jumping between other graphic design apps to nail consistency. Here are my issues (with a fully updated version!): 1. It doesn’t save my design completely. While it will show completely in the creator/app, it doesn’t save the full design (I. E.: removing an entire text box or even cutting ½ of one off) to my photos. This is INCREDIBLY frustrating, and the only semi-solve I’ve found is to copy the entire design into a new design (“copy of...”), make a change, and then download it. But doing this after every minor change is suuuuper tedious. 2. The interface makes it hard to select lines, shapes, and other illustrations without selecting the background layer. 3. Where’s the lock layer button on mobile? Seriously, bring it back! 4. Canva, you’re killing me with the premium stuff. Seriously. Just get it out of my way if I’m on a free account! I’ll pay for photoshop, but I’m not paying for Canva. Canva has been a good mobile alternative to photoshop for me for many years, however, I’m over the inconsistency and time it takes to get simple things done.
Love the desktop version, but app isn’t the best
by AngGren on 2019/10/08 14:02
I pay for the pro version and LOVE IT - on the desktop version anyway....the app is always offering a trial 14 days for the pro version, but I’m already paying for it....?Do I need to pay twice to be able to access ALL of the pro features within the app (ie. saved brand fonts)?? The app is incredibly glitchy when downloading finished projects. The text and shape of pictures is sometimes distorted and/or cut off. Also, there are more glitches when using both the app and the desktop version on the same project. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes I create something quickly on my phone to get the project started, but want to finish on the desktop version, and this can sometimes be an issue. I highly recommend Canva to everyone I know, however I always advise using it on their computer first, as the app can be off putting.
Worst App Ever
by jazzy1224 on 2019/01/25 15:15
First, I’ll say that the web based version is amazing! What an absolute abomination the IPad and IPhone apps are. First, what the heck is up with all the crazy add-ons and purchases, which isn’t even available on the web. The images pro subscription, the canva for work subscription, the image packs? Absolute obnoxious! Piece of advice, be consistent! Offer simple pricing regardless of whether you are using it on the web or on an IPad. This crazy pricing doesn’t work. Second, the interface...where do I start! The web version is AMAZING! Easy to find things, the editing is fantastic! What happened on the iPhone and IPad? Did you guys design it while drunk? It’s terrible. Resizing text is a joke! Finding images is incredibly hard. You have all these little icons and stuff, crowns, premium, pay for — again way too complicated! Simplify..Honestly, just take the web version and make it into an IPad and IPhone app. Seriously, do yourselves a favor. You have a great concept.
Great for all of my projects!

Love LOVE this app! I use this all the time!!!But I HATE HATE HATE the new interface/layout I saw on there today!!!!! It was sooooo clear, easy to navigate and understand before, and I couldn’t have loved an app more. Today, I am soooo bummed about the changes!!!! Please bring the older interface back!!!! I was in love 😍 and now my heart is broken 💔 please please please from someone who uses this all the time- literally almost daily- I feel lost now, the categories don’t stand out for my needs at a glance, the pics for each category don’t catch my eye now and entice me to create something... anything!! And I t’s more confusing 😢😢😢 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻please... the layout that you have on the App Store this minute is how I love it! 🙏🏻😢🙏🏻😢✨✨✨ please bring the old layout back

Works great sometimes but the app glitches a lot
by ChannellN on 2018/10/30 02:23
I use Canva a lot and it works pretty well on my laptop but there are a few issues with the app. 1. When looking at designs on the app they scale differently than on the laptop. You have to review the images in the app to make sure the font is the correct size and when you open the app, colors change, images shift and the fonts change. 2. The app glitches and freezes a lot. While making edits the app will reset the entire graphic and won’t allow you to fix it how it was. You end up spending more work correcting the app issues than creating the actual design. 3. You can’t create GIF designs on the app. If you create them on the desktop it saves on the mobile device as a sold photo. I have to use my scheduling app to post the actual GIF from my laptop. I would also suggest a phone display option on the laptop. You have no way of telling if the font choice or size is appropriate for mobile view without opening the app. This creates an extra step and sometimes more work because the app glitches and changes what you already created.
Love it but not as much as I used to
by dolphinlover02 on 2019/10/04 02:15
I love using this app. It’s my go-to app for when I need presentations done or other photo related projects. However, I’m not sure if I remember correctly, but you used to be able to pay for a font that’s not on Premium but not anymore now if you want to use any good font you HAVE to pay the subscription which is super inconvenient because of the fonts you need you’re paying for all the other fonts that you don’t like AND never use. For example, I’m using this app to create my senior yearbook ad and it’s a lot harder to make it the way I want when all the pretty fonts are under the Premium package. Anyways, overall the user-friendliness, versatility, broad options, topics, etc. Are AMAZING I just would wish you could bring back this feature otherwise it’s definitely a 5 star app!
Let’s you add pictures to a picture!
by Paigeypeach on 2019/09/20 15:12
I was looking for an app that I could add a picture to a picture and this was the only one I found. I am sure there are others but through my research this was the only one I found. I use this editing app for business and Instagram and I absolutely love it and think it’s is THEE BEST ONE! So easy to use only thing that can get a little frustrating that I’ve noticed is sometimes when you try to click on a text to move or edit it doesn’t always work. Sometimes I’ll click on it a thousand times before it finally works. I’ve had others say the same thing so it’s not just my phone. That’s an easy fix tho and still gets the job done.
Update is Terrible
by --SelinaV-- on 2018/11/15 22:24
I used to love the Canva app and I use it all the time for work. At first glance, this update is great. It looks beautiful, sleek, and minimized. However, when you start using it, it’s impossible to use regularly. It is no longer friendly to original designs, it is completely focused on the pre-made templates. Things aren’t that straightforward... for example: to add your own images without a template, you have to upload them in “Icons” (??) and the way you need to tap elements for different actions isn’t that intuitive. Worst of all, it is CONSTANTLY crashing on me. It’ll give me the “We couldn’t save your work” message and kicks me out of my graphic. I suppose the only saving grace to this issue is that I’m only able to make one minor change before this happens. What should have been a simple, straight forward design that could’ve taken me 15 minutes to make, is still incomplete because it won’t save anything I do.
Good app but...
by Perfectsadie on 2019/11/17 15:02
So far I’ve only made one project with this app and it was great. Easy to use, good options for fonts, backgrounds, etc. I’m giving it three stars though because while if simply buying font upgrades or whatever were an option I would probably do it, I HATE subscription apps!!! Actually, hate is an understatement. I detest finding an app I like (but wouldn’t use terribly often) but can only get the full version with a subscription I’d rarely use. Why would I pay for a monthly fee for a product I may only use four times over a year?! I’d gladly fork over some cash to “own” a more than what comes free so I can use it for years, but a subscription where I “own” nothing at the end when I wouldn’t use it every day anyway? No thanks. Long story short, good app but having to subscribe kills it for me.
I became a small business owner when I discovered Canva!
by Mergercounsel on 2019/06/06 02:46
Without Canva I was a lawyer. With Canva I was a small business owner. The difference was night and day. Without Canva I was a lawyer who had an office in a very nice building, business cards, expensive stationary, no clients and no thought of how I was going to advertise my practice. (They don’t teach you that part in law school). Within 10 minutes of being told about Canva, I had a new ad that I posted to LinkedIn that 500 people had seen within the day from Los Angeles to New York. The ad was subsequently reposted all over social media by colleagues and friends. Don’t just be a licensed professional: be a small business owner! A successful one at that. Use Canva! You will never regret it!
I’ve been using this app for about a month..
by StarringIdol on 2019/06/25 18:36
I wrote a review not long ago, on June 10th. I tried the app again today, and some glitches/bugs were fixed. But I would like if the following were done: 1. I’m not sure if you can move an image around inside a frame on mobile, because it’s either I can’t figure out how to, or it doesn’t exist on mobile. If It does, I would like to know how to, if it doesn’t, I’d appreciate if you added it to the app. 2. Sometimes when I try to save my design to camera roll on the main page of all my designs, if I have a photo inside a frame, after I look at the saved project in my photos, in replacement of my photos is a picture of grass, blue sky, and a cloud. 3. How do you crop the image? It’s all on mobile. Thx!

the most frustrating app in history
by gchachaba on 2019/12/05 19:43
I really want to love Canva. The premise is great, and I use it all the time for school. However, with the amount of glitches and slowness on the app, I’m honestly starting to question if it’s worth it. I went to save an infographic that I made, but when I saw the final project, the page was not anything like what I had made. I tried repeatedly to save it from the app into my photos, but I finally gave up and screenshotted it. Don’t get me started on how slow the editing is. It took me three hours to make said infographic mentioned before because I would click to edit something and it would glitch and crash. I literally can’t use Canva in class because of how aggravated I get. Canva would be such and amazing and useful app if the glitches and slowness didn’t take away the value of it. Please do something to fix this so I can actually enjoy the app.
Not impressed

There was an issue with ordering my project (Place Order button didn’t work) and the only way to reach customer service was by email. It took them over a week to respond. Thankfully my project didn’t have a deadline thus time! Then when I figured out the solution on my own there were two orders placed. I am currently waiting 4+ days to hear back from them about returning the double order and getting my money back. Incredibly frustrating. Otherwise an intuitive and nice design tool.
Greatest App For Beginners & Veterans
by BabyGraphics on 2019/12/03 16:07
I never leave reviews about apps in fact this would be the first one. This app might not have every feature like glitter lettering but it definitely gets the job done for a small business the can’t or doesn’t want to pay graphic designer for every flyer! This app is super easy I use both on the computer & my phone sometimes while using it I run into a snag & have to use my computer! But it simple to use and it has turned me into a graphic designer overnight!
Best app but only 3 stars
by BigFaceGurb on 2019/12/03 15:37
WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO LOCK ITEMS IN PLACE!!! I’m sure everyone has had this happen.. you’re trying to edit but your big thumbs click something else and completely changes your whole design!! The most frustrating thing ever.. !!! FIX THIS!!!!!!!
It was supposed to be good
by Pascal Roger on 2019/12/03 06:43
I love using canva on my laptop in the web and when ipados was released, i was thrilled at the thought of being able to use it on my ipad. Sadly it was way to laggy and had too many bugs, thats why i naturally gravitated to the app. To my surprise it was full of bugs too. This time though, much much worse. I think ill go back to the web version.
Love this app

Creative & Convenient

Absolutely recommend this app.
I dig it

Great way to create stuff for social media 👌
I use this app all the time & I LOVE it!
by Sky Greenwood on 2019/12/01 21:56
Out of all the graphic creator apps I’ve tried- Canva is by far my favorite!! I use it often to create graphics of all kinds: logos, Instagram posts, invitations, flyers, and SO much more. You can use the templates or start from scratch and create on your own. There are TONS of free images and graphics included in the free version of the app. My only complaint is that it seems to crash quite a bit (sometimes more than others) and close out of the app. Luckily though, whenever it does crash, it DOES save all the work you just did pre-crash.
Party planning

Big Nothing
by Chunky Princess on 2019/12/01 03:30
Not sure what is wrong but nothing loads. App says that my iPad is a compatible version, but that little loading circle just keeps spinning round and round. I spent $12.99 for a big nothing. Super disappointed.

DATA BREACH WARNING
by MyName5555 on 2019/11/30 17:03
I was notified this week that my email address was leaked/hacked from Canva to the dark web. Be warned about your info security. This is why I hate app devs asking for personal info.
So Frustrating
by Elehmann on 2019/11/30 15:22
I can’t say how many times I’ve tried to create a Facebook cover photo, to have the design not save how I created it, not load, error out, etc. and when it does work, the dimensions aren’t correct. I will be cancelling my subscription.

SCAM!!!!!! Charged me $119
by Zoeboo2 on 2019/11/29 10:21
They have no phone number but have no problem charging my card $119.40 without my knowledge. Their “FREE TRIAL” is an absolute scam. I’m sick to my stomach an app charged me so much and I am having so much trouble trying to get the money back. I’m going to have to go to my bank to report fraud.
Easier on a desktop.
by DowDang on 2019/11/28 20:36
I love this program, I’ve used the desktop version a few times with much success. However, I find the app to be somewhat clunky and not very intuitive.

App needs some tweaks
by DrKirklandPT on 2019/11/28 12:48
First, let me start by saying that overall, the Canva platform is AMAZING! On the computer, it’s pretty much all I use for my nonprofits marketing and social media needs. The app, on the other hand, is a bit frustrating. If you have to switch from Canva to another app you lose everything. Moving objects isn’t the smoothest either, and many times results in changing the shape rather than moving it. Lastly, in the middle of a project, the app freezes quite a bit. So, Canva, overall gets 5 stars, but the app leaves something to be desired. It doesn’t come close to the awesomeness of the online version.
The best app ever!
by stephyxox91119 on 2019/11/28 10:30
Canva is life!
I use this for everything I need! Great for on the go too!
by SemsThoughts on 2019/11/27 20:04
Working within a volunteer position at an association I have tried pretty much every tool out there to help design social media posts, to activity books & reports. Canva (both desktop & the app), have really been a life saver on multiple fronts. It's pretty easy to use & create anything in a pinch when it comes to creating quickly or on the go. Their library has expanded & I love when they roll out new features like motion in Instagram stories. I truly can not recommend it enough. On a personal note, I have used their resume templates & have received great feedback from employers to help give me a boost in career selections for jobs. I really do have Canva to thank for my employment! You helped me nail my job :)
Thank you canva

Canva gets better and better
by MEERADOLL on 2019/11/27 18:29
I have a monthly subscription. I use Canva for Social Media posts and use templates. It even has video templates which are more expensive with other subscriptions. It does the work of several apps. Very awesome!
Went from great UX to the worst
by ellentk on 2019/11/27 13:38
The update to the latest on the ipad has rendered this app useless. They forgot the User Experience in this formerly useful tool. Adding an image - even after granting access to my photos - does not work. On iphone or ipad. I use it horizontally on my ipad and that’s just hell. Slow, not able to add images from camera roll, forgets the text I set on a graphic I created on another device and open on the ipad. Orientation of left right/top bottom with tools is frustrating. Can’t imagine paying a subscription fee - I almost did!
Watch yourself with this app
by PlatinumJR on 2019/11/27 11:39
They leaked my email address to the dark web. 🤷‍♂️ (UPDATE- since response- More precautious should have been taken. Far too may people had information stolen thanks to this app. Apple should remove this app from the store. Amazing how many people’s info was leaked from this app alone. 🤨🧐)

Broken App
by AnthonyThinksThisIsStupid on 2019/11/26 17:16
Every time I try to use canva, the app does NOT work the way it is supposed to. It saves the wrong photo to my camera roll, uploads the photo to the app with the wrong orientation, does not scale photos properly, and often times doesn’t save any photo whatsoever. I strongly dislike this app and I wish I could give it negative stars.
Greeeeeaaattt!!

Hacked
by trythisone2 on 2019/11/25 20:12
I was notified my email address was taken from their app and website from a recent hack ! Fix your security! Then if I rate you low I can’t enter any nick name always says taken! This didn’t happen last May just this month so I guess your means of a fix didn’t work !
Edited text on this app is SO glitchy
by Sam1990Jo on 2019/11/25 17:37
There are some beautiful designs on this app, but trying to edit and personalize them is absolute trash. I am so frustrated!
Glitchy
by TiffanytLouise on 2019/11/25 17:31
Honestly, app version of this program is very glitchy. The desktop version seems much more user friendly. I am always having to start over, re download, and reformat my projects on the app.
Data breach
by Resa1219 on 2019/11/25 13:06
Update 11/25 Thanks I received your message however I don’t think that you realize that you must still have a problem because my credit card company just found my email was breached by your app this month. Not last May when you claimed this happened. I only started using this app in May. Please check your app to ensure there are no further breaches. Original I am just wondering if you all know you had a data breach because I haven’t received any emails from you about it however my credit card company found my email on the dark web due to a Canva data breach. Maybe look into this and close your security holes!
Beware no security

App forcing me to do free trial on Pro

I have Pro, but it won’t let me use my Pro
by Briskly devil on 2019/11/23 22:37
I have been using Canva for my personal business. It has been the absolute best tool ever to use. Today when I logged in to use my pro, I pay monthly for this, it is telling me I don’t have access. When I checked my subscriptions..I just paid for Canva on Nov 22nd. I even stopped my subscription and re started it. Still gives me an error message and won’t let me use the Pro that h pay for. Please fix this!
Amazing

Great templates, infinite possibilities.
Several data breaches
by heliotropin on 2019/11/23 15:46
I originally downloaded Canva thinking it would be a great easy way to create interesting things. I didn’t use it too much, but over the course of a year my email address has been found on the dark web twice because of signing up with Canva. My other information does not appear to be stolen, and my password doesn’t appear to have been compromised, however the fact that my private information keeps getting breached because of Canva, I’ve closed out my account and will not use them again. I recommend everyone monitoring their personal data because I don’t think Canva is doing enough to protect it. I wish I had the ability to upload a screenshot showing the data breach was directly attached to Canva.
Very difficult
by @#catintheflame on 2019/11/23 08:18
If I click on a column it will just go to something else so I can’t edit it it’s terrible and you should never get it
Love it but...
by Pajflower on 2019/11/23 02:40
Here’s a note to the creators....can you keep the current project saved so if I move from this app to the internet it will save my current project without me having to start all over. That’s annoying. Thank you!

Garbage
by jdshaw1 on 2019/11/22 03:46
The Canva is extremely sensitive to every touch and you will probably waste most of your time fixing pieces of your design work that you accidentally messed up. The website is amazing and I would give that five stars but the app is extremely frustrating. I have spent three times as much time working on something I could have completed on the website in no time. Very disappointing.
Best to worst
by judgymom on 2019/11/22 01:10
Loved this app before.. but know is glitching too much, I can’t even finish my project. Its TOO frustrating. Load and load AND LOAD. Before I can give this app a five; but know is a 1
Best APP in the world

App not saving work, support not accessible.
by JulieSoJoyful on 2019/11/21 15:16
Although I have successfully used this app in the past Recently I tried multiple times to save A design with no luck. It just freezes up. The app is up to date. I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max, the iOS software is also up to date. Then when I go to contact support in the App Store it takes me to the app rather than an email to report a problem. I have also tried their website under ‘support’ with 0 results. Would never purchase the pro version with these problems unresolved.
HORRIBLE
by spencerclintok on 2019/11/21 13:52

Useful, but frustrating
by Clucking3268638 on 2019/11/20 17:04

Great app

I love this app, it’s user friendly and the designs are spectacular.
Incredibly Impressed
by 8biteight on 2019/11/20 11:52
I’m a web/UX designer with limited knowledge of how to design for print and I had a client that needed a brochure made. I took a chance on Canva with the free trial and I am completely blown away. Exactly what I needed, just enough freedom to design freely and pretty foolproof. AMAZING UX DESIGN! I was able to make what I needed quickly without stressing about the interface and learning a new tool. I felt compelled to write a review just to say I think your app & web app is one of the best I’ve ever used. There were only a couple things I couldn’t do: 1) add drop shadow/borders to images, 2) change credit card info at checkout. Thanks, Canva! Great app!
Not a suitable app for iPad
by Marrrrri160 on 2019/11/20 04:01
The Canva app does not seem completely compatible with my iPad. It frequently crashes, restarts the app, freezes up, and it doesn’t seem to sense where I’m tapping on the screen. Every time I want to grab a text or other element, it never allows me to grab the element I want to grab, it always picks a different element up — and this is with me using my finger or my Apple Pencil. This happens multiple time with every use causing me to get frustrated. I am considering cancelling my Canva subscription because it is just not compatible with iPads.
USELESS
by ShopBeau.De on 2019/11/19 22:20
For some reason it saves my images blurry. And no matter how many times I close out and restart the app or restart my iPad it doesn’t fix the problem. I’ve updated my system and everything. It’s quite frustrating. Overall it is a decent app to design on and I recommend beginners to use this as it’s very beginner friendly.

Great app but...
by Jberg42 on 2019/11/19 03:20
I love this app and it’s helped me create great designs for my business, the only downside is how often it crashes! The last 6 months I’ve been using it, I don’t think I’ve created a full design without it crashing, sometimes it saves all your work, other times just saves some of it. This has become a huge frustration and has me looking for other apps to do the same stuff. I also think that $13 a month is a little pricey and out of my price range, I wish there was a less expensive version with the ability to download and save without a background and have the ability to save brand fonts and more than 3 colors but maybe still have to pay for the graphics and stuff that are not free.
Best tool for business owners
by exyangie on 2019/11/18 23:40
Don’t hire a graphic designer, buy Canva. It’s super easy, has tons of options and is pretty fun to be honest. I love it.
Doesn’t let you redownload
by 504vegan on 2019/11/18 20:54
Good app but if you already downloaded your design it forces you to repay for the elements you already purchase if you need to download again
Errors
by Nicb360 on 2019/11/18 17:55
The moment I subscribe to Canva Pro the app is down where I can’t upload pictures or make edits. First impressions are everything and this isn’t a great one.
Doesn’t save anything
by Debbiemo on 2019/11/18 17:31
I can’t save any of my work. This is extremely infuriating. Please fix this.
iPad App Lacks Control
by jessa2701 on 2019/11/18 16:27
The desktop version of Canva is great. I hoped to have the same experience on the go on my iPad and iPhone, but I can’t click on design elements, drag things, or even edit text with control or precision. It is very glitchy! I basically use the apps to access files I’ve created on the computer.
App changes language/location automatically
by Cimile1979 on 2019/11/18 10:39
I was fine with this app but haven’t used in a while. Then the next time I tried to use it - it sends me to China version. I am located in China but I don’t want to use canva.cn, I want to use the normal english version, and there is no option in app to change this. Nothing pisses me off more than when apps do this kind of stuff so I uninstalled it.
Fix dual screen
by joe18293joe 69 on 2019/11/18 01:17
This app would be so much better if i was able to have two apps opened at the same time side by side (like safari for example). It also makes it so difficult to work with the text option its so annoying to use, unresponsive at times.
I LOVE the app but...
by JTHudd on 2019/11/17 20:16
I started using Canva after my teacher had us use it for an assignment and I've used it ever since for my Instagram posts and such, but I'm writing this to report a bug. The app won't allow me to sign in. I try signing in to my school account and when I put in my password it says "We're sorry. Something unexpected happened and we couldn't log you in right now." I know it's the right one because when I try other passwords it simply says that I entered the wrong password. I've also tried logging in with Facebook but when I come back to the app from Facebook, it says "Logging in" forever. As I said in the title, I absolutely LOVE the app, but I just can't log in.

Keeps saying error

Good app but...
by Perfectsadie on 2019/11/17 15:02
So far I’ve only made one project with this app and it was great. Easy to use, good options for fonts, backgrounds, etc. I’m giving it three stars though because while if simply buying font upgrades or whatever were an option I would probably do it, I HATE subscription apps!!! Actually, hate is an understatement. I detest finding an app I like (but wouldn’t use terribly often) but can only get the full version with a subscription I’d rarely use. Why would I pay for a monthly fee for a product I may only use four times over a year?! I’d gladly fork over some cash to “own” a more than what comes free so I can use it for years, but a subscription where I “own” nothing at the end when I wouldn’t use it every day anyway? No thanks. Long story short, good app but having to subscribe kills it for me.

One of my fave editing apps!
by akosmopolite on 2019/11/17 03:46
Canva is the 💣. I use this app along with a few others for my YouTube channel video thumbnails, Instagram, Facebook and other creative ideas. It’s versatile. What I can’t find on Canva, I just switch to other apps like PicsArt and edit my photo in between the two apps. Right now can’t think of what I’d suggest. Maybe more elements/transparent images/masks to use or overlay over an image.
Dark web?

The prints didn’t arrive on time! Awful customer service.
by ohju321 on 2019/11/16 02:21
I picked this app because is fast and easy to use. They guarantee me to get the brochure prints on time for an important event today but I didn’t got them. The customer service is awful. I was trying the hole day to contact them but I only got standard answers back. Very unsatisfied.
OK but buggy enough to make unusable
by Sadie_Pichon on 2019/11/16 02:20
The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because I love the app when it works. However, the recent update makes me need to use another app. It freezes quite often, particularly when I’m trying to view pages or the text is too long. But the worst is that if I click into another app, even a web browser, ALL of my work is lost. Time and time again I have lost hours of work because I needed to Google something. Ugh.
Terrible on IOS
by writerthehall on 2019/11/16 01:24
I’ve loved this app on Android but it doesn’t work for IOS. It won’t let you edit the last sentence and last letter of text. Every time it just cancels out. This app is amazing for Android. Don’t bother for IOS.
Incredible Tool for Small Business Owners
by MmeganKkate on 2019/11/15 21:20
Canva has made it easy for me to do so many things that make a huge impact on my business. I have no experience with graphic design, but it is extremely user friendly. Canva has allowed me to execute projects on my own that I would previously outsource. I’ve designed investor pitch decks, social media graphics, promotional materials, business cards .... and COUNTLESS other things. I’ve even designed my family Christmas cards on Canva! I normally use the desktop version, but the mobile app is also amazing when designing on the go! Kudos to the creators of this program. I’m sure I’m not the only user benefiting so much from all Canva has to offer.
Love this app but...
by anchuchak on 2019/11/15 19:04
I use it for everything but I don’t get why like apps like Over and Instories I can’t upload downloaded fonts directly to the mobile app. It shouldn’t be that difficult.
So Simple
by Ricci Bryan on 2018/11/03 03:37
This app is so simple to use. There are a few quirky things. #1 Once I load a photo into the app from my album, you can’t remove it. #2 You can’t add multiple photos in a design or I haven’t figured it out. It’s a one photo per design app. I do love that they’ve now added the ability to add two different fonts in a design. #3 Doesn’t allow you to name designs. #4 it doesn’t allow me to save the different variations of my work. For example one of my insta posts was done with 3 different color backgrounds, B&W, and a faded effect. Each time I modify it, the work I wanted to keep is overwritten instead of it creating addt’l files with all variations. I now export before I make changes. It can challenging when you have 30+ social media accts for six companies. #5 I have to modify a design in order for it to save to ‘my designs’ as opposed to just selecting it and others to determine what I want to use. Overall, the app works great, it has so many options to make it happen. I use this app in addition to a few others in combination since you can’t photoshop in this app. I love anything that makes my life easy and Canva does that!!
Canva... the app we all want to love

Let’s start with the good. It’s 2018 and nobody makes a (sort of) desktop publishing app for iOS except Canva. So kudos for taking this project on. That said, the app is so painstakingly frustrating, I’m kind of amazed I still use it. It crashes all the time, weird changes are made when I go to save (wasting precious time), and lots of other very quirky things. Example. When working with text, in order to exit edit text mode, one has to click done. That alone takes forever, but after hitting done no matter what page I’m on in a document, the app leaps forward to the last page. Another example. Try renaming a file. It crashes every single time. Try renaming it again. This time it works. Every single time. The list goes on and on, and things load oh so slowly. So long story short. This app isn’t ready for the field. It’s hardly even beta worthy. But we all still use it. Why? Because there’s nothing else out there for iOS. The moral of the story is that we need other developers to begin working on publishing apps so that we not only have a choice, but so that Canva has some competition. The developers respond quickly, roll out updates, and make promises, but bottom line is the app still remains broken. Honestly, it’s such a chore to use. There is nothing enjoyable about the app and all I hear out there is that when we go to work on a project.... we just pray we can make it through. Upward and onward.
Still some oddities in the system
by A.C. Groffman on 2019/04/22 01:21
EDIT: Previously, I had written a negative review saying that a recent update had essentially removed every feature of the app that I used for my designs, background color editing among this number. I am happy to say that, for the most part, those features have been restored. I am able to access and edit all my designs on my iPad, and the completion of the update has made usage fairly easy. However, there are still some large issues that need to be fixed which prevent me from giving this app five stars. For starters, I cannot access any templates on my iPad. If I click on the Templates button, nothing appears. I have tried this multiple times; every other tab under the + button works exactly as intended, but it has been a month or so now and I can’t access any templates. This is a pretty big issue for me; the vast majority of my designs use a specific template. The second issue I have is that I still cannot edit background colors on my iPad. This is also a large aspect of my designs, and right now that means I have to switch to my laptop to be able to actually get the design I want. I’d quickly change this review to five stars if these factors were fixed, but for now this remains a frustration for me.
HATE the Updated iPad App
by LennyPam on 2018/11/11 03:48
I’m a long time Canva user and absolutely loved this app. I use it all the time for all my blog graphics. However, Canva recently updated the software for iPad and now I hate it. What was once an easy to use app, is now cumbersome, has less functionality, less ease of use, less user friendly, less everything except the amount of time it takes to create a new graphic. It has got to be about 200% slower. It works very similarly to the iPhone app - which I hate. If I can’t use the old interface, I’m gonna be forced to switch apps. Please don’t make me switch. Don’t make the iPad app function as poorly as the iPhone app. I need speed, ease of use and lots of functionality that works well on my iPad. Not my iPhone, but my iPad. I also can’t edit any of my saved files in Canva as I receive a compatibility error message. PLEASE FIX THIS!! PLEASE AT LEAST GIVE US THE OPTION OF USING THE OLDER VERSION. I HATE THE UPDATED IPAD VERSION. SERIOUSLY. HATE IT! I CAN’T EVEN USE IT, BECAUSE IT JUST SITS THERE FOREVER SPINNING, TRYING TO LOAD AND CAN’T. PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE US BACK THE OLD VERSION. PLEASE. How about if you do away with the iPhone version and just use the old iPad app? That’s a great idea! Or make the iPhone a limited functionality (which, it essentially is). Please give me back the Canva I loved! I am extremely busy, carry my iPad with me everywhere I go and use Canva all the time. Please do something about this!
Leaked my password to darkweb
by Kayla0725 on 2019/08/23 19:20
So I wish I could rate this higher, because it was pretty easy to design the business card I wanted, it was easier when I went to the website. I was able to make it in 20 minutes on the website vs an hour messing around in the app. However when I tried to purchase the card it would not accept my card, it kept getting errors. The next morning I saw it tried to charge and then refund my card 3 times so not sure what happened there. Still it refunded all of them so no loss of money, just frustrating. I then took a break before trying again to purchase the card I wanted, but in that time I got an alert from Credit Karma that I had had a security breach and my password was found on the darkweb. The site that had the breach? Canva. Now I’ve had to deal with changing any website that I’ve ever used a variation of the password I used there, and it’s not every app and website, but it’s enough to be a lasting headache. TLDR liked the card I made, but I couldn’t purchase it and they weren’t secure enough not to leak my password. 1 star.
The update ruined everything
by Steph Pen on 2019/04/20 18:24
I used to really like this app, and I would use it all the time like 9 months ago, and I’ve been using it since, just not as much because it’s changed a lot and it’s getting so hard and annoying to work with now. First of all, the college lay out I would use the most is no longer on the app, which makes me really mad since it was my favorite one. Secondly, whenever I save something, it saves completely different than what I originally had. It takes me opening and saving it again 3 more times to get close to how I wanted it to save in the first place. Lastly, editing is getting SO annoying and hard now. Before, editing a picture within a collage was really easy, just double tapping and zooming in or out. Last month, whenever I double tapped the picture, there was a lot of pictures and lines overlapping each other which made it really confusing and annoying to edit, but now, I can’t even do that. Whenever I double tap a picture now, it takes up the space of the entire collage and it doesn’t even let me edit it. It doesn’t let me zoom in, out, or even let me move it around, it just goes back to how it was. This is really stressing me out, and I use to really love this app. Please let me know if there’s a way to fix this, because it’s very hard to use the app for all these reasons.
Canva is the best!
by Laura Mellark on 2019/02/13 07:52
I have been using Canva for a while now and it has never disappointed me. Never! Sure there’s paid elements to site but the free options are just as high quality and I can always find what I need in the free options. I use Canva for making programs for my children’s theater productions, posters for my sister’s band events, invitations for all my occasions, and literally every other need I have for graphic design. I sent the last program I made to a professional printer to have them stapled and put together to save time on our end, and they said the file was absolutely perfectly made and laid out. They even said they were going to start using Canva too and recommending it to their other customers. I can’t express enough how much I love Canva! Now I do prefer the website just because it’s on a bigger screen buuuuuut, you have almost all the options in the app as you do online. And you can save designs right to you phone. Anyway, Canva is an excellent service!
New update: why?
by Selena_Ewing on 2018/11/09 05:13
I believe that the functionality of the design has gone down with the new interface update. Viewing my projects was way easier in the previous design. I find it harder to add in my own logos from external applications. The reason I loved this App was because I could be creative while on the go with my iPad or iPhone but now I will have to return to using the Website version to make the process easier on me which is not favorable. Please don't prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
New Version is not worth it
by LTWOODRING on 2019/11/07 14:28
I used to LOVEEEEEEE Canva. I did all of my real estate marketing graphics with it and I was really impressed with the product and the ease of use. After the update to iPhone and iPad the app has been crashing and flickering between pages. I feel the new version allows for less customization and doesn’t use all of the screen space on my iPad Pro which feels like I’m straining to see all the details of my designs. Other annoying things like having to use the search feature to find items like “lines” make this new version almost not worth using. **UPDATE** still using Canva, but still not happy with the ever-changing interface. Y’all are really desperate to get money these days. Now, I can’t even pick a font without having to navigate between free fonts and premium fonts (the free fonts used to be listed at the top, the premium fonts at the bottom. Now, they’re all mixed in). I guess this is what happens when your fav apps start charging users money. I just don’t have a reason to pay a monthly subscription for this yet....and I see there was some sort of security breach for paying users SMH
Best design app for us novice/intermediate folks!
by piperlou on 2019/01/05 06:52
This is a great design app! Especially for those of us that love to design but don’t have all our skills honed in on Adobe ID or photoshop. Great tool and love using it for work and my side hustle! 2 suggestions one: wish you could put “your designs” in folders so I could keep my work and side projects separately. Two: when you find a graphic you like I wish it would give you the key words associated with the graphics (like tags)so you could search for more like it or just keep track of designs. A itty bitty complaint but no deal breaker—- I like the 2.0 version but it is a little irritating that I can start a design on my laptop and finish on my iPad because I used a different version. Not that big of a deal I just have to remember to start the project on 1.0. So many options and so user friendly! I have told many of my friends about this great app. I see it only getting better! 🤗
New updates make app useless
by Crazykellsbells on 2018/11/23 22:20
I’m a long-time Canva user and have the yearly business account, which I use often. I was thrilled when they first came out with a mobile app and have also used this frequently and had it work fine. However, in the past month or so they have introduced new updates to the app which have made it completely useless. It crashes every 30 seconds when you are trying to edit (not an exaggeration!), so you can’t use it to make any new projects. I often use it on the go to make small edits to Instagram templates for my company’s social media accounts, but even something as simple as editing a color causes it to crash. I usually buckle through and after many crashes and swear words I can get the minor edits done, but then when I actually go to save my project it will export without any of the new edits and I end up with an old version of the file. I’ve taken to screenshotting my final project in order to use it. Super frustrating, and I hope the developers fix these issues soon. Even my husband knows how much I hate the app issues because I complain about it every time I try to use it!
I love it but it's frustrating
by -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ- on 2018/10/17 04:39
I use this all the time on my laptop and I love how simple it is on there and everything is just convenient and easy, but since I can't use my laptop for some reason I'm not getting that same experience on my phone. It's a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it's harder for me to find them and control, I can't change the sizes of my pictures and I can't copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it's stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don't like the size or something else I can't add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can't make the exact changes I want. I also noticed that some of my old savings have fonts but I saved through phone some of them are gone and I can't get them back again :( other than that I'm really happy there is a app version! I also really like that you can have your work every where and other devices! Thats really smart!
PHENOMENAL OKAY!!
by prettyloaf on 2019/07/26 02:50
This app is amazing. I started a new job , while the owner of the company was in the middle of getting things organized and up and running completely. So she asked me to make her some name tags, why in heavens did she pick me I have no idea, I didn’t even know where to start... well I just so happened to type in “make your own name tag” on google and “Canva” was an option under apps. Well I downloaded it and it was completely easy .. the name tags I made game out AMAZING. I could make the font , the size I mean whatever I dreamed of was right there for me to edit. I edited my name tags made them completely to my liking of vision , emailed them and then had them printed off and eliminated at a near by fed ex kinkos. MY BOSS WAS IN LOVE and they look completely professional! I now have a way to make future employees name tags and also received a pay raise !! I love the genius whose behind this app and THANK YOU CANVA!! You rock
Too difficult to login from phone. No help from Canva
by Lorrenb1 on 2018/09/02 01:02
I find Canva okay. The app itself is great however, i’ve noticed that I can always login in on my computer but it gives me issues logging in from my phone. It won’t ever send me the reset password link if I do it from my phone. It’ll just tell me to make sure that I have the most updated version of the app and to try again even though I already do. Trying to find customer service contact info is nowhere near easy on the app and when I tried to use safari to access the website from my phone it ONLY redirected me to use the app which was already unsuccessful. As you can imagine this was a frustrating rabbit hole. I had to find an old email from Canva which has a customer service link. But when I sent a request in twice, they told me I would hear something back soon and I have heard nothing. That was last week. It should not be this difficult to get in contact with the company. Other than that, I love the app and all the options it offers once I’m able to use it. I just want to be able to use it with ease.
Photo Folders
by HeatherLandry on 2019/05/20 13:51
May 2019: Thanks for the response, but I don’t use the app much, so I probably won’t bother contacting you. You didn’t even say whether I’m supposed to have access to custom folders or not. I’m referring to folders you create on your PC and sync to your iPhone. Should I be able to access those? Some apps don’t allow it. Thx. Jan 2019: I wish I could try out more designs and features, but I just have no patience for the extremely rare app that doesn’t give the user access to their custom photo albums (folders you transfer to your iPhone through iTunes). Am I really the only person who uses these albums? Because I’m always shocked when an app somehow doesn’t consider access to them important. Sometimes this can be the result of a glitch in the app. I have the same issue with Messenger, and used to have this problem with Facebook, but it was finally corrected. So if the problem is on my end, let me know, and I’ll add more stars to my rating. You can email me at “heatherlandry” through Gmail if you want to.
Very good app
by Mrclutch420 on 2019/11/06 00:17
They’re always trying to improve this app and they’re very much on top of things. I use this app nearly every day to make edits and designs and it has been extremely helpful for me. With every app, it takes some time to getting used to, but it’s a great app! 👍🏻 Ps, there has been an issue lately where the app closes an edit if you leave the app for even like 1 minute. It makes you re-open the edit over and over again. This is the only issue I have ever really had. Also when I saved my edits, the fonts would sometimes move around. You can get past this by simply screenshotting the pic, and then cropping it in your phone:) hope that helps someone out there! I have confidence that the Canva team will continue to make improvements and fix these minor issues.
Not worth subscribing for
by Treyvon03 on 2019/04/23 07:47
I’m not one to leave reviews because I genuinely find great apps to use and those that I don’t like I get rid of immediately. As for Canva, a service I’ve used for years(on desktop) I didn’t expect the app to work the way it did. Working on a basic level without any pro-level editing I tried to create a document, and the app wouldn’t do what I wanted. Fearing that it was just because I was using the free version I paid for the subscription, and that didn’t fix my issues. Frames wouldn’t line up, adding text was insanely difficult, and subscribing to any of there services is a complete waste of time and our money. In addition to those issue the app was filled with other frustrating things, it crashes, freezes, and restarting my phone won’t work for this app (I have a new phone). I’ve reached out to Apple and they weren’t able to help because this was completely on mine and Canvas behalf. DON’T GET TRICKED LIKE I DID, DON’T DEPEND ONTHE MOBILE VERSION, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DON’T BUY ANY SERVICES FROM CANVA. Hopefully, they fix there problems and QUIT SCAMMING it’s user because this truly had been a great service and now I’ve lost trust.
A Beautiful Mess
by PixyChic5.0 on 2019/10/17 13:32
First things first. Love the fact that Canva has beautifully made templates that are ready to use with your own text and images. Or, you can use their gorgeous free images (only non-pro version images). Makes creating graphics a little easier. Canvas creating abilities are unmatched, to my knowledge with the ability to create such a vast array of features and documents, like social media graphics, letterhead, book covers, calendars, posters, flyers, and beyond. Plus, it’s capable of resizing and adding and duplicating pages and graphics easily. I use Adobe Post, Over, and Desygner. They have lots of features, but don’t quite match up to Canva...yet. Unfortunately, Canva is quite unreliable in creating graphics quickly on IOS and desktop as it takes several taps or clicks when attempting to edit text or move other graphics around. So, it takes triple the time to create graphics due to this glitch or imperfection. Grrr. Hoping that Canva developers will resolve this issue soon.
Help
by VV1956 on 2018/12/28 02:52
I really really want to like this app and website. I recently downloaded to iPhone, iPad and website on Mac. There seems to be limited help and support for figuring out how to do things. The tutorials are extremely basic and I’m struggling with completing a few tasks. The potential is huge but the iPad app to so very basic you can’t do much. You cannot got to the web version in Safari because it forces you to use the iPad app instead. I’ve tried to email support for help but there is no support so I ended up finding a link stating something was broken. We’ll see if the developer answers. There needs to be a better system for figuring out to use this. I am trying to navigate within the website version on my Mac because that’s really where this shines however some of it doesn’t take any sense. For example, I created a logo but cant seem to use it anywhere or create other things I need like business cards, postcards, website banner etc. using that exact same logo. It should be easier. Help!
Great for what it does but could be better
by Gabneg on 2019/03/12 21:04
I wish a few tweaks were made to make it more efficient. First, I wish I could filter through free images but it won’t let me. I get the pop up message telling me to upgrade. If it’s not available on the free version then don’t make it an option. It’s so time consuming scrolling through hundreds of images/graphics trying to find free ones but hey it’s the price I don’t pay 😊 I wish I was able to save different versions of my designs. Just because I change one aspect of it doesn’t mean I want the current version saved/overwritten. Now I have to make a copy make the changes there then save that copy as my other edited version which is a pain and can be easily fixed. I also wish there was an option that would allow me to write/draw On my designs. Overall, it’s great for what I need it to do but minor tweaks could make it that much more amazing.
Finally gave up on paid subscription
by midtnmomma on 2019/09/22 13:18
I’ve been using Canva for over two years, and had the paid subscription for the past year. I used the mobile version almost exclusively, and it had issues more often than it actually worked as expected. I wrote a review one time and attempted to get help only to be told “we can’t replicate the issue”, and coincidentally, there was an update after I submitted the issue that fixed the problem. It crashes, features don’t perform the way they should, most recently, it failed repeatedly to save a very simple graphic over multiple attempts in a 24 hour period. I’ve cancelled the subscription and will be using other apps that are more dependable. Not to mention it seems as though the “free” illustration options improved under the paid service-items I don’t recall being able to use when I wasn’t paying were now showing as though they were available for free...confusing, and such a disappointment because I do like the simplicity of the app.
New Update with many flaws
by User 071010 on 2018/12/31 08:08
This app was initially a great app. It’s easy of use and the ability to edit on your mobile device was great. Unfortunately, with the new update there are many bugs which makes the app very frustrating. I find that I have to go back to the computer to do all my work. The app doesn’t save the changes I make to blurring images so nothing saves and I have to wait until I have a desktop to make the changes. Also, with the new web version, you can’t edit some of your designs in the app. You have to go to the web application. If someone shares a design with you, you can’t edit it on the mobile app. You have to go to a desktop. The mobile site forces you to use the mobile app so you can’t get around it and you have to wait and plan to have everything done on your desktop eliminating the convenience of a mobile app. Overall, I think the design options and what it has done for us who have little to design skill is great and I appreciate that, but the level of frustration with the mobile app is so frustrating!
Disappointed. Is it just the update?!?
by sizzle iphone on 2019/02/09 14:47
I really wanted to love this app. I created a small project before and the experience was good. I have to agree with others that the recent update for iPad is not good. As I’m trying to work on a presentation, I find the iPad app is incredibly frustrating to use now. Changing the text on a page template requires severe tapping or holding to bring up the edit fields. And when you click done, each time the window closes and takes you to the last page instead of the template you were working on. It’s taking three times as long to finish something so simple. Also the template “layout” I want to use doesn’t show up on the iPad. So I had to add the template to my designs in the online version in order to see it on iPad. Giving up on the iPad version and going to use the online version on desktop to finish the project I started. But to say the least, I’m disappointed because I am looking for a good iPad app that has the creativity and functionality.
Was ok, but now you have to pay...
by MaloryB on 2019/04/19 16:11
From recommendations from others, I started using this app and absolutely loved it...even though some of the pics weren’t great quality at times, when downloading pdf versions my items were missing or in different places all over my projects (I still managed to make it work out ok in other ways), and trying to save or edit my projects at times took too long. Because others loved this so much and even used it for their projects (and because I didn’t know of any other apps to use because this was so easy to use when I first started), I have kept this app. Now, to use some of the features I frequently used, I have to pay. I’m sorry to sound negative, but at first...this was such an awesome app. And ever since I first started using it last year, every update that’s happened, this app has started become one I don’t go to as much as I did at the beginning. I don’t mind a onetime fee if it’s #1...affordable...and #2...worth the cost. Sorry.
Canva is the shiiiiizzzz
by Vitamin Patch on 2018/11/30 16:48
Seriously this has to be one of my favorite programs to use and the fact that you can do sooooo much with the free version alone is incredible and I had zero apprehension about buying the service bc this company is beyond generous! From the free version, to the customer support, I have had the BEST experience and have introduced a dozen other people to this program who also love it! Super easy to use and both desktop, and app versions are great! (Few bugs in the app, but overall good stuff) You won’t be disappointed unless you are just a miserable human who enjoys finding fault in everything! If you don’t like Canva even the tiniest bit, you’re probably someone who also hates sunshine, cute baby animals, and doesn’t believe in climate change 😂
0/5
by Johnnykush87 on 2019/10/06 21:18
I used this program for a while and thought it was great at first. The templates are straightforward and plentiful. Then I realized just how unstable it is. Not only does it crash all the time and delete progress but it also rearranges everything you put down in the slightest way so as to goof up everything. Then I got an email from my internet protection service alerting me that can a had gotten hacked and that they my personal information. Ever since then I’ve been dealing with hackers trying to get into all of my accounts. Just yesterday I had to cancel my debit card because some people who lifted my login and personal info from Canva started spending my money. I’d rate this app as 0/10 if I could because it’s been nothing but a headache from the start. I just wish I could go back in time and never make an account in the first place.
I keep getting logged out
by predictivetextwrotethis on 2019/04/15 15:24
This app would get a 5 star rating if it didn’t boot me out every few days. When I try to sign back in with Facebook, it loads Facebook, I hit continue, the “sign in” button turns gray with a loading graphic, then it just turns green and says “sign in” again... back to square one. I have to close the app out and try it several times over before I can get back in. Also a little annoying that I can’t work on ANYTHING in the app without internet. If I lose signal for a minute, in the middle of working on something displays up a pop up notification that I’m not online and then closes out my work with no progress saved. If it had done nothing and let me keep doing what i was doing until the signal came back it would have been fine. 🤦🏼‍♀️ so, a few bugs, but the app overall is a good one.
Update rendered Canva unusable on iPad Pro
by Gx Cori on 2018/11/25 08:26
My camera roll does not show in this new Canva and frankly I hate that I no longer can work on Canva in Landscape mode on iPad Pro. Was my main reason for using Canva above others. Horrible update. I will be finding something else to use. I wanted to add I don’t like the desktop version updates either. I had forever been trying to test out the video option and couldn’t find it. This totally set back our Black Friday prep, I was literally about to pay for a subscription when I started seeing all the updates. I use Promo-Republic to post to social media, because of the metrics, but their editor is horrible, so I would make Canva graphics to import and use instead. Their editor is now better than Canva, but that’s not saying much. They have no iPad app. But at least I can use it web based in portrait mode on my iPad. Right before holidays is a terrible time to update especially when so many small businesses depend on Canva. I had to go to Adobe Spark...poor substitute, ugh. Canva fix all of it!
SO frustrating
by AshlanMarie on 2018/10/25 20:18
I loved this app for about a month while using it to create instagram posts and blog graphics from my phone. Everything was great...until out of nowhere the app stopped working. Even after redownloading the app, restarting my phone and even going so far as to contact “customer service” (who, by the way, never contacted me back) I have been having issues where when I go to create or edit a template my designs will not be saved or as I’m attempting to save the image graphics, text and whatnot get moved/displaced. The only way I can get around it sometimes is by having to screenshot my finished work then going into my photos and cropping everything else out which leads to poor resolution. That worked for maybe a week before I experienced another issue where when I go to move graphics or text it gets completely sent off the screen/resized and I’m unable to put it back to the sizing I need. Even after using the “undo” arrow when I attempt to move my work around AGAIN it does the SAME THING before the app just crashes and kicks me out. It now takes me over 2 hours to complete something that would only take me MAYBE 20 minutes before. I’m so frustrated with this app and so disappointed after receiving such great service the first month of use. My phone and the app are both up to date with no technical issues. I have yet to try this on my iPad out of fear I’ll just grow more frustrated.
Unusable now. I had to delete the app
by wantwinter on 2019/10/16 21:53
It’s been months since I used the app, so I was stunned to open it and find that literally nothing works anymore. I can’t delete text to add my own, the keyboard vanishes when you need to use it and it won’t come back, double-tapping to edit doesn’t work—even trying to delete does nothing. How did you blow up a good app so thoroughly? Even more, how did you test the results and say “Yeah this is ready for people to use?” I mean ??? I just hope there’s a decent alternative because Canva is worthless now. And please don’t reply with the usual “reach out so we can help”. The reviews have been awful since last November. If you cared about fixing it, you’d have done so by now. Just updated, app won’t take my password
I use this for everything I need! Great for on the go too!
by SemsThoughts on 2019/11/27 20:04
Working within a volunteer position at an association I have tried pretty much every tool out there to help design social media posts, to activity books & reports. Canva (both desktop & the app), have really been a life saver on multiple fronts. It's pretty easy to use & create anything in a pinch when it comes to creating quickly or on the go. Their library has expanded & I love when they roll out new features like motion in Instagram stories. I truly can not recommend it enough. On a personal note, I have used their resume templates & have received great feedback from employers to help give me a boost in career selections for jobs. I really do have Canva to thank for my employment! You helped me nail my job :)
Love this app but a few frustrating glitches
by aengman87 on 2019/09/30 10:49
Absolutely love this app but very frustrated with a few glitches, as I use this proffesionally and keep running into the same issues. Issues are as follows: when making a design and everything is aligned perfect and ready to save, after saving the graphic is saved differently than the graphic that was finalized. Text moves, words over lap, animations move locations, or alignment changes. In addition, when using the video feature, the logo is no longer transparent. I pay for the premium version and unfortunately a few times realized the changes after already sharing the graphic to social accounts. Sometimes ill fix and change multiple times only for it to happen again and again. It seems I am saving 10 different versions of each graphic before getting the one I finalized.
Canva is great, but there’s a few minor glitches
by chin-yi_kong on 2019/06/07 18:07
I love canva so, so much. All the templates and images and illustrations are so cute. Although i’m fairly new to canva, there are some things that i’ve done before that it won’t let me do now. For example, i put a polaroid frame onto my card. Then, i tried to put a picture in it. I’ve done this so many times before, but now it won’t let me. The picture just sits on top of the frame instead of actually going in it. This isn’t a major problem, but it is one that should be fixed. Maybe i’m just doing it wrong, but i’ve done it before. I don’t really understand why it’s not working now. Other than this small glitch, Canva is such a fun app to make collages and things like that. I love it so much!
Canva for Mobile
by ChoosingGrace on 2019/07/27 17:47
I have been using Canva on desktop for a while now and enjoyed it. I recently downloaded the app and have been using it and overall my experience has been good and without many issues. However sometimes my download of Instagram story pictures failed to download from the main photo gallery. Though I’ve found that this can be remedied by clicking on the download button on the editing page. I would also like to have the ability to consolidate and separate pictures as well as recombine or combine them like I can on desktop. Their app seems to allow me to only separate photos from being combined, however, I could just be unaware of where that feature is in the app. Overall, I am enjoying my time using the app and I have no complaints to speak of.
Just sick over the newest update
by G.Parish on 2018/11/24 06:57
I just used the app on my iPad this morning and created a couple wonderful easy ads. Then I updated to the latest update. What a shock when I went to Canva to create a quick image a few minutes ago and the whole thing was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! Now I cannot use it in landscape mode, it is stuck in portrait, and my usual pictures I had in my account (not on my camera roll, but downloaded ones) are no longer there. The whole thing is a lot harder to use. The whole user interface seems to have a lot more hoops to jump through. Did someone think this would be be better? I love Canva, and use it all the time on both my desktop computer and the iPad. Now I guess I can’t use it on the iPad anymore. This change was a BAD idea. I’m glad I found out before I upgraded to Canva for Work. I was going to do that this week, but now I’m not even sure I’ll stick with Canva. I am one unhappy user. Please, please, please can we have it back how it was before?
Good app but buggy sometimes
by Brian8253 on 2019/10/09 19:08
I’ve experienced good things and bad things on this app but I will still give it a 5 star because I’m sure it’s just some bugs. I’ll be in the middle of creating an Instagram post and the page gets stuck sometimes scrolled down. When I go to fix this or refresh the app it deleted my work 🤦🏼‍♂️ slightly upset but nothing to freak about. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my connection to the internet or what but just something I thought I would give as some feedback to the developers. I’m using the new IPhone 11 so that may have something to do with it but other then the small bugs and screen getting stuck in some spots it’s a great app!!! Definitely considering going premium!

ive used a plethora of photo editing apps, and have not met one that works like this. ive seen a few that might look like they compare but they all cost money, so finding an app with as many great features and usages as canvas provides without having to spend a dime is incredible. the ads on here are not annoying what so ever so thats a big plus. everything is really easy and simple, and you come out with great high quality work. i highly suggest this app for everyone, especially towards people who havent found their picture perfect photo editor. i searched for over four years before finding canvas and im really glad to say i can end that search now. as a user i definitely want to help improve and bring more people to this app, this is the type of app you genuinely get excited about and want to share with others who have the same hobbies. i would however suggest making the undo/redo button more apparent, it doesnt stand out really well and it looks like there is no redo button if you accidentally click undo. at the end of the day i love this app and im extremely pleased with what has been produced 🤠🤠🤠🤠👍
Great- but only to a point
by ig:abiidavyy on 2019/10/22 05:39
I’ve been using Canva for years, but recently the app has become glitchy and overall unreliable. Where I used to be able to depend on Canva to create social media posts via my iPhone, I’m now jumping between other graphic design apps to nail consistency. Here are my issues (with a fully updated version!): 1. It doesn’t save my design completely. While it will show completely in the creator/app, it doesn’t save the full design (I. E.: removing an entire text box or even cutting ½ of one off) to my photos. This is INCREDIBLY frustrating, and the only semi-solve I’ve found is to copy the entire design into a new design (“copy of...”), make a change, and then download it. But doing this after every minor change is suuuuper tedious. 2. The interface makes it hard to select lines, shapes, and other illustrations without selecting the background layer. 3. Where’s the lock layer button on mobile? Seriously, bring it back! 4. Canva, you’re killing me with the premium stuff. Seriously. Just get it out of my way if I’m on a free account! I’ll pay for photoshop, but I’m not paying for Canva. Canva has been a good mobile alternative to photoshop for me for many years, however, I’m over the inconsistency and time it takes to get simple things done.
Love the desktop version, but app isn’t the best
by AngGren on 2019/10/08 14:02
I pay for the pro version and LOVE IT - on the desktop version anyway....the app is always offering a trial 14 days for the pro version, but I’m already paying for it....?Do I need to pay twice to be able to access ALL of the pro features within the app (ie. saved brand fonts)?? The app is incredibly glitchy when downloading finished projects. The text and shape of pictures is sometimes distorted and/or cut off. Also, there are more glitches when using both the app and the desktop version on the same project. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes I create something quickly on my phone to get the project started, but want to finish on the desktop version, and this can sometimes be an issue. I highly recommend Canva to everyone I know, however I always advise using it on their computer first, as the app can be off putting.
Worst App Ever
by jazzy1224 on 2019/01/25 15:15
First, I’ll say that the web based version is amazing! What an absolute abomination the IPad and IPhone apps are. First, what the heck is up with all the crazy add-ons and purchases, which isn’t even available on the web. The images pro subscription, the canva for work subscription, the image packs? Absolute obnoxious! Piece of advice, be consistent! Offer simple pricing regardless of whether you are using it on the web or on an IPad. This crazy pricing doesn’t work. Second, the interface...where do I start! The web version is AMAZING! Easy to find things, the editing is fantastic! What happened on the iPhone and IPad? Did you guys design it while drunk? It’s terrible. Resizing text is a joke! Finding images is incredibly hard. You have all these little icons and stuff, crowns, premium, pay for — again way too complicated! Simplify..Honestly, just take the web version and make it into an IPad and IPhone app. Seriously, do yourselves a favor. You have a great concept.
Great for all of my projects!

Love LOVE this app! I use this all the time!!!But I HATE HATE HATE the new interface/layout I saw on there today!!!!! It was sooooo clear, easy to navigate and understand before, and I couldn’t have loved an app more. Today, I am soooo bummed about the changes!!!! Please bring the older interface back!!!! I was in love 😍 and now my heart is broken 💔 please please please from someone who uses this all the time- literally almost daily- I feel lost now, the categories don’t stand out for my needs at a glance, the pics for each category don’t catch my eye now and entice me to create something... anything!! And I t’s more confusing 😢😢😢 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻please... the layout that you have on the App Store this minute is how I love it! 🙏🏻😢🙏🏻😢✨✨✨ please bring the old layout back

Works great sometimes but the app glitches a lot
by ChannellN on 2018/10/30 02:23
I use Canva a lot and it works pretty well on my laptop but there are a few issues with the app. 1. When looking at designs on the app they scale differently than on the laptop. You have to review the images in the app to make sure the font is the correct size and when you open the app, colors change, images shift and the fonts change. 2. The app glitches and freezes a lot. While making edits the app will reset the entire graphic and won’t allow you to fix it how it was. You end up spending more work correcting the app issues than creating the actual design. 3. You can’t create GIF designs on the app. If you create them on the desktop it saves on the mobile device as a sold photo. I have to use my scheduling app to post the actual GIF from my laptop. I would also suggest a phone display option on the laptop. You have no way of telling if the font choice or size is appropriate for mobile view without opening the app. This creates an extra step and sometimes more work because the app glitches and changes what you already created.
Love it but not as much as I used to
by dolphinlover02 on 2019/10/04 02:15
I love using this app. It’s my go-to app for when I need presentations done or other photo related projects. However, I’m not sure if I remember correctly, but you used to be able to pay for a font that’s not on Premium but not anymore now if you want to use any good font you HAVE to pay the subscription which is super inconvenient because of the fonts you need you’re paying for all the other fonts that you don’t like AND never use. For example, I’m using this app to create my senior yearbook ad and it’s a lot harder to make it the way I want when all the pretty fonts are under the Premium package. Anyways, overall the user-friendliness, versatility, broad options, topics, etc. Are AMAZING I just would wish you could bring back this feature otherwise it’s definitely a 5 star app!
Let’s you add pictures to a picture!
by Paigeypeach on 2019/09/20 15:12
I was looking for an app that I could add a picture to a picture and this was the only one I found. I am sure there are others but through my research this was the only one I found. I use this editing app for business and Instagram and I absolutely love it and think it’s is THEE BEST ONE! So easy to use only thing that can get a little frustrating that I’ve noticed is sometimes when you try to click on a text to move or edit it doesn’t always work. Sometimes I’ll click on it a thousand times before it finally works. I’ve had others say the same thing so it’s not just my phone. That’s an easy fix tho and still gets the job done.
Update is Terrible
by --SelinaV-- on 2018/11/15 22:24
I used to love the Canva app and I use it all the time for work. At first glance, this update is great. It looks beautiful, sleek, and minimized. However, when you start using it, it’s impossible to use regularly. It is no longer friendly to original designs, it is completely focused on the pre-made templates. Things aren’t that straightforward... for example: to add your own images without a template, you have to upload them in “Icons” (??) and the way you need to tap elements for different actions isn’t that intuitive. Worst of all, it is CONSTANTLY crashing on me. It’ll give me the “We couldn’t save your work” message and kicks me out of my graphic. I suppose the only saving grace to this issue is that I’m only able to make one minor change before this happens. What should have been a simple, straight forward design that could’ve taken me 15 minutes to make, is still incomplete because it won’t save anything I do.
Good app but...
by Perfectsadie on 2019/11/17 15:02
So far I’ve only made one project with this app and it was great. Easy to use, good options for fonts, backgrounds, etc. I’m giving it three stars though because while if simply buying font upgrades or whatever were an option I would probably do it, I HATE subscription apps!!! Actually, hate is an understatement. I detest finding an app I like (but wouldn’t use terribly often) but can only get the full version with a subscription I’d rarely use. Why would I pay for a monthly fee for a product I may only use four times over a year?! I’d gladly fork over some cash to “own” a more than what comes free so I can use it for years, but a subscription where I “own” nothing at the end when I wouldn’t use it every day anyway? No thanks. Long story short, good app but having to subscribe kills it for me.
I became a small business owner when I discovered Canva!
by Mergercounsel on 2019/06/06 02:46
Without Canva I was a lawyer. With Canva I was a small business owner. The difference was night and day. Without Canva I was a lawyer who had an office in a very nice building, business cards, expensive stationary, no clients and no thought of how I was going to advertise my practice. (They don’t teach you that part in law school). Within 10 minutes of being told about Canva, I had a new ad that I posted to LinkedIn that 500 people had seen within the day from Los Angeles to New York. The ad was subsequently reposted all over social media by colleagues and friends. Don’t just be a licensed professional: be a small business owner! A successful one at that. Use Canva! You will never regret it!
I’ve been using this app for about a month..
by StarringIdol on 2019/06/25 18:36
I wrote a review not long ago, on June 10th. I tried the app again today, and some glitches/bugs were fixed. But I would like if the following were done: 1. I’m not sure if you can move an image around inside a frame on mobile, because it’s either I can’t figure out how to, or it doesn’t exist on mobile. If It does, I would like to know how to, if it doesn’t, I’d appreciate if you added it to the app. 2. Sometimes when I try to save my design to camera roll on the main page of all my designs, if I have a photo inside a frame, after I look at the saved project in my photos, in replacement of my photos is a picture of grass, blue sky, and a cloud. 3. How do you crop the image? It’s all on mobile. Thx!
